Records of the Woolwich District Vol. I
Records of the Woolwich District Vol. I Kindle Edition
by W. Vincent (Author), Michael Wood (Editor)
Originally published in 1890, this FamLoc edition is a slight modification. The images have been moved to better coincide with the text, and there have been changes to format and punctuation. However, the grammar and prose has been faithfully retained, other than changes to a handful of typographical errors and the very few instances where clarity was required.
The footnotes of the original have been hyperlinked to the references in the new Notes chapter at the back of the book
“Records of the Woolwich District vol. I” covers just Woolwich itself. Volume II covers Abbey Wood, Bexley, Charlton, Eltham, Erith, Kidbrook, North Woolwich, Plumstead, Shooters Hill, Welling, and Wickham, as well as additional topics on Woolwich.
It includes over 200 illustrations, plus 45 photographic portraits of local men of influence.
The book includes many old maps, is rich in the main institutions of churches, schools, charities and industries, and also includes topography, and notable events, making it invaluable for the local historian, family historian, and others with connections to the area around Woolwich.
