A-Z started by producing a street map of London in 1936 and this is a facsimile reproduction of the A to Z London Street Atlas, circa 1938/39, this publication shows street mapping of London as it was before the Second World War bombing and the redevelopments that followed and may be of assistance in tracing family history for that period. The coverage extends from central London to Edgware, Whetstone, Palmers Green, Edmonton, Walthamstow, Snaresbrook, Seven Kings, Barking, Silvertown, Plumstead, Kidbrooke, Bellingham, South Sydenham, Croydon, Streatham Common, Morden, Wimbledon Common, Twickenham, Richmond and Kew.
Included is a pictoral 3D map of London which shows blocks of tiny houses where large buildings are now the norm. There is also a section of 'Places of Interest' which gives the reader a postcode district and, often, the nearest station along with a short description - for example: WATERLOO BRIDGE, W.C.2 (Stations: Temple D Waterloo BN) Originally opened in 1817, Rennie's bridge became unsafe in 1924. It is hoped that the building of a new bridge, designed by Gilbert Scott, will be completed in 1940.
Even if you didn't want to trace family history, this makes a novel gift for anyone who lives or has lived in London as it provides a fascinating insight into what the capital was like pre-WW2.
