About the author

Edwin Monk was born in 1879 and moved to Stroud Green with his family when he was six years old. He died aged 99 in 1978. His longevity meant that he lived through a period of rapid suburban development and growth. His remarkable memory allied to his long standing interest in local history meant that in old age he could recall in detail the neighbourhoods he knew when he was young.
