From the rear side cover: Where a road has been named to commemorate a particular person, it has been fascinating to
discover and understand more about them. To know and understand how and why a name is given to a street or a place helps us to be more aware of our surroundings, history and heritage. Many places and streets in Newington are extremely old and some are new. Many names are self-explanatory and some more mysterious.
The meaning and history attached to these names and much more, can be found in this book. This publication is also a full colour, pictorial record of Newington as can be seen today. I hope you will find it both interesting and informative.
The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Has a small price sticker on rear side cover
