Book cover of Battersea and Clapham, The Second SelectionBattersea and Clapham, The Second Selection
Patrick Loobey

Most of the images in this volume of photographs compiled by Patrick Loobey date from the first few decades of the twentieth century. Many are taken from postcards, which were a widely used form of communication before the telephone became common. They depict a world of local shops, popular entertainment, horse-drawn transport and colourful characters. The architecture of Battersea and Clapham is well represented, from public buildings such as halls and stations to shops, businesses and private dwellings. Also, there are many images of the inhabitants of the area. The book has chapters on Clapham High Street, the Old Town, the streets of north and south Clapham, the Common, Clapham Junction, Battersea streets, its buildings and people and Battersea Park.
