This volume brings together David Mander's previous works to provide a complete history of the London Borough of Hackney. Ranging from the earliest settlements in Roman times, right up to the present day, the book describes how the borough changed from a country parish into the rich and diverse community it is today at the beginning of the 21st century. Within its pages are many hundreds of photographs of the streets, pubs, local characters, industry, churches and schools, along with extensive captions and historical information from the author. David Mander has brought together a revealing selection of rare images and drawn on his special knowledge of the area's history to create this portrait of one of London's most interesting boroughs.
Impressions of Hackney 1861-2001 is the latest work produced in association with the staff at Hackney Council Archives department. It will take you back to the Victorian age, and right up to the present day, with views of corresponding scenes in 2001.
