The Community, Past, Present & Future

by Peter Abbott & the Anerley Writers Circle

The Book of Penge, Anerley & Crystal Palace unfolds a panorama of fascinating, near unbelievable and occasionally bizarre events which have taken place in the area. Readers are invited to reflect upon the causes and effects of such events and ways in which things can be improved in the future.

The area's history is charted back over 1,000 years; the book outlines the unprecedented development since the early-1800s, local setbacks on a catastrophic scale and comebacks reflecting the gritty determination of its people.

160 pages. Over 200 historic photographs, maps and illustrations. Hardback.
