Windrush Square, by Alan Piper

Published by the Brixton Society, 16 pages. A5 size booklet (N4357P1)

Subtitled 'A brief history of the square and its main points of interest', this booklet provides a short account of Windrush Square in South London, which was created in 2010 (when the former Tate Gardens in front of the Brixton Library were merged with the old Brixton Oval to form a single pedestrianised open space), and which was of course named after the 'Empire Windrush', a ship which docked in Tilbury in 1948 carrying around 500 West Indian immigrants from Jamaica who were intending to settle in Britain.

The booklet includes several small black and white photographs, as well as a colour map of the Square, which covers the two central inside pages.

Condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
