ROMFORD has changed. Most of the landmarks and buildings that a Victorian Romfordian would recognise have gone. Fortunately, the Romford of those days is preserved for the present and for posterity in photographs ... many hundreds of which survive. From these and from written and other sources the author has compiled a splendidly evocative and highly visual record of life, work and leisure in an age of horse-drawn transport, thatched houses, livestock in the streets and an almost rural Romford. Not that Romford was a quiet place, in the last century; for the sound of military bands and marching soldiers from the barracks must have added to the hubbub of a market full of cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, geese and cockerels, with 'barkers' selling remedies, cures and gadgets, which, together with the steady drone of the auctioneers and the urgent clamour of bicycle bells, earned the town the nickname 'Blareum'. The noise is the only aspect of Victorian Romford that is not in the book - all the rest is here, in a profusion of powerful pictures and well researched captions to bring the past to life for the modern resident and add insight and interest to our appreciation of the town today.
