The Making of a London Suburb

Here’s the book I wrote a few years ago: The Making  of a London Suburb: Capital Comes to Penge.

It set out to do three things: to celebrate the quirky Victorian railway suburb where I happen to live; to reveal some of the historical processes that created the townscape of Penge as it is today; and to show how these processes only make sense as part of the development of London, the first great capitalist world-city.

It’s still in print and available from:-

Bookseller Crow on the Hill, Westow Street, Crystal Palace;

Alexandra Nurseries, Parish Lane, Penge;

Online from Made in Penge.

If none of these work for you, please help defend civilization against barbarism by ordering it through your own local bookshop and NOT from Amazon.
