Brentford & Chiswick Local History Journal 26
A4, 32 pages Price £5.00
A love story linking Hogarth’s House and Boston Manor House and an account of the rise of a footman at Chiswick House to become a property-owning gentleman offer connections to surviving historic houses in our area. Two articles record Transatlantic connections, one marking the 400th anniversary of the visit of Pocahontas in 1617 and another introducing Benjamin Franklin’s Chiswick friends. An account of osier-growing and basket-making and a paper on the Caradoc Press, in Bedford Park and Strand on the Green complete this issue.
