A Stitch in Time: Clothing in West London 1880s-1980s by Gareth Griffiths and Phil Philo
21cms square, 64 pages, published by Gunnersbury Park Museum to accompany an exhibition of the same name Price £2.50
Our local history museum at Gunnersbury Park has a remarkably good collection of clothing from which a selection of items were shown in this exhibition in 1987. The project was supported by sponsorship from 3M’s Photographic Division and grants from the Arts Council of England and Greater London Arts – it was built around superb colour photos by Ed Barber which record the manufacture, sale and care of clothing in the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow in the 1980s. Many of the photos are in the book which is exceptionally good value.
