Whitehall Gardens Centenary Celebrations 1897-1997

edited by Trevor West

A4, 20 pages, £2.00.

This charming photocopied booklet was produced privately to mark the centenary of a Chiswick street and grew out of the enthusiasm of one resident for local historical research. Not only did Trevor West assemble the history of the street, built between 1896 and 1900, but he managed to trace a former resident with clear reminiscences and excellent snapshots as well as the great-great-nephew of the original builder, who has contributed a piece himself. Today’s residents also had the good sense to add a list of everyone at each address in June 1997 ready for the celebration of the 200th anniversary!
