Face of Slough
This new history of Slough gives a vivid insight
into the dramatic changes that have taken place in
the town over the last 100 years. The story is fully
illustrated with over 250 photographs from the archive
at the Slough Museum.
The authors describe the modern centre of the town,
recalling the swift pace of development that has created
the familiar shopping and business area of today.
But they also pay special attention to the history
of the surrounding districts, which are a vital part
of the make up of the modern town. Sections are devoted
to Britwell, Haymill, Farnham, Cippenham, Stoke, Baylis,
Chalvey, Wexham/Lea, Central, Upton, Kedermister,
Langley St Mary, Foxborough and Colnbrook/Poyle.
These fourteen wards have their own distinctive identities,
and this book is the first account that has properly
covered their history and acknowledged their importance
in the development of the area.
