This fascinating new book contains over 200 old photographs of Croydon and one of its larger suburbs, Waddon. The images are assembled and annotated by local historian Ray Wheeler and provide an important insight into local life over the years. Many of them have never been seen by the public before. All aspects of everyday life are recorded here, from shops, businesses, churches and schools to work and leisure, day trips and days off. The landscapes and landmarks of the town and its surrounding areas are captured in this valuable historical record of life in the area as it used to be.
