The North London town of Edgware has a parish dating back to the Middle Ages and links further back to the ancient Watling Street. It gives its name to the Edgware Road and the former village served as the first/last stopping point to travellers riding out of and into London. With the arrival of the Underground extension in 1924, the traditional village was rapidly transformed into a suburban town. Today, still growing, Edgware is visibly steeped in history with reminders of the old-world village it once was, and the suburban town it has grown into.
In spite of the many changes that have occurred in Edgware the town has retained its identity and much of its historical buildings. This fascinating selection of old and new images of Edgware will be essential reading for all those who know the town and the area.
