Steve Grindlay: Sydenham and Forest Hill Through Time
The Kirkdale Bookshop and Gallery in Sydenham, London
Yesterday local historian (London SE26 and SE23) launched his new book – Sydenham & Forest Hill through time (£14.99 from Amberley Publishing) – at the long established Kirkdale Bookshop. Part of a series called Through Time, which already includes similar books on East Dulwich and Beckenham, it contrasts old photographs from sites around Sydenham and Forest Hill with the same views taken today. For instance Cobbs Corner pictured in 1926 is compared to the Corner taken this year. It is fascinating to see what changes and what doesn't.
