Enfield, the northernmost of London's suburbs, has changed enormously over the last 150 years. The former Middlesex market town is now firmly embedded in the vast London conurbation.
Eastern Enfield developed into a major industrial area, well known for such products as radio valves, electric fires and cookers and, above all, the world-famous Lee Enfield rifle. Enfield Town and the surrounding area are, by contrast, pleasantly residential and the north-western fringes, protected by the Green Belt, remain overwhelmingly rural.
Enfield is a fascinating account of the area using over 220 images ranging from the 1860s through to the 1960s and illustrates, in great detail, the process of Enfield's absorption by London.
