Greenwich: Center of the World (Images of England) by David Ramzan.
Greenwich has always been well known for its position on the Meridian Line. As David Ramzan illustrates in this new book, the area also has a rich history with its commercial and industrial businesses in the town or on the river, and its naval and military connections.
Illustrated with over 200 images, the book brings to life bygone days when Greenwich was a major tourist attraction where visitors could take a steamer trip along the river, spend a day in the park to watch the deer or visit the theatre or a famous riverside tavern. At the turn of the twentieth century, it was also a fashionable area in which to live with many Regency style and Edwardian buildings. Although today much of Greenwich’s heritage has been lost, this book will show what a wonderful place Greenwich was and still is today.
