Bygone Ilford by Brian Evans (1989)

Mostly black and white photos of Ilford, with a few maps and handbills, written by an enthusiast with a lot of information to share and no real idea how to structure that information. Oddly for a book about the historical development of this area, he assumes that what he knows in 1989 is known to all his readers and has never subsequently changed. The Broadway, for example, is no longer identified as such in the A-Z, and I had to work hard to identify it from photographs and associated text. A list of photos keyed to map references would have been extremely useful in coping with another two decades of change.

Nevertheless, an interesting use of a couple of hours.
