Description

Discover London's Notting Hill as it was a hundred years ago, presented in a unique collection of more than 200 images from 'real photo' and printed postcards. Take a visual tour which leads you from the unveiling of the Tube station at Notting Hill to the bustling market stalls of Portobello Road in the Edwardian era. See where the only Jealous man in London was a pub landlord, the Madders sisters had a dancing school, where Napoleon's nephew experimented with poisons and how to find Mrs. Memory and Miss Perfect. Follow in the footsteps of Notting Hill's residents all those years ago.Chapters guide you along Notting Hill High Street, Pembridge Road, Kensington Park Road, Ladbroke Grove, Lancaster Road and Westbourne Grove to Portobello Road. With a commentary including quirky facts and coincidences, a small dose of architecture and a sheer delight in the people who don't always make it into the history books, let Hermione Cameron, author and resident, show you "Notting Hill Behind The Scenes".
