From a child's viewpoint, the pre-war years of the 1930s were full of carefree, halcyon days when the sun always used to shine; but for many people the 1930s were, regrettably, quite the opposite. In this book all aspects from pre-war to post-war Uxbridge are covered, including street scenes, schools, buildings, transport, leisure and entertainment, and personalities. The book will also be of interest to younger generations growing up in Uxbridge and to those who wish to learn more about the history of the area.
James Skinner was born in Uxbridge and lived there for many years. He is the author of eight books on cinema and local history including Hillingdon Cinemas, West Drayton and Yiewsley, Around Uxbridge and Ickenham, for Tempus Publishing. He now lives in Norfolk but returns occasionally to visit his daughter in a nearby village
