In this intriguing new collection of old postcards and photographs, the Paddington of the past has been recreated through the images that were recognisable daily sights to those who have know the area during the twentieth century. From street scenes of bustling market days to the first sighting of motor cars on Paddington streets, the reader is taken on a nostalgic trip into a bygone era of this fascinating former borough of London. The broad streets that crossed the city and the carriages and wagons which travelled along them are preserved here in magnificent form, as are the shops and traders who served the needs of the people of Paddington. The smart terraces and apartments of Bayswater and Tyburnia are set alongside recreational images of walkers taking the air in some of London's many royal and municipal parks. Anyone who has visited Paddington, or who has memories of the area as it was, will find this book both stimulating and informative. Paddington provides a rare opportunity to witness the vibrant history of an ever-changing inner London area.
