Wood Green Past

By Albert Pinching

This is the first history of a district which began as an unpretentious hamlet and is now mainly residential but also an important shopping centre of north London. Wood Green’s past is surprisingly interesting and well recounted in this lavishly illustrated hardback book in a popular format.
