Between 1865 and 1965, Wimbledon underwent a transformation from growing Surrey village to suburb of the newly-enlarged Greater London. This fascinating period is brought to life in over 200 photographs (mainly from the archives of the Wimbledon Society Museum of Local History) together with the entertaining and informative text of leading local historian Richard Milward.
