Hornchurch is often recognised as a World War II front line RAF Airfield, but the town has a long and varied history dating back to the last Ice Age. Hornchurch Through Time brings together a colourful collection of old and modern pictures and postcards of the area. The popularization of photography in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries reveals a village centre filled with interesting buildings many centuries old in Essex vernacular style. Drawn from family albums, local collections and professional photographers, they show the way things were and how they have changed. Every photograph is captioned, revealing historical and anecdotal detail and giving life to the scenes and personalities captured through the camera lens. Bringing together all aspects of daily life the collection should inspire memories, as well as serve as an introduction to visitors.
