Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Billericay is a town steeped in history. Although developed by the Romans, the site of the town had previously been inhabited in the Bronze and Iron Ages. Many 16th- and 17th-century buildings still stand. In this beautifully produced book there are pictures showing all the buildings that were in the High Street. Many of the photographs are of properties that have been demolished and since replaced. The author explores the history of the High Street and its surrounding roads, taking in areas of interest such as the Isolation Hospital and the First World War Zeppelin crash site. In addition to the changing face of the town, this fascinating collection of photographs features the people, traditions, culture, events and industries that make this Essex town unique. The reader can see First World War troops marching down the High Street, buildings decorated for Edward VII's coronation, a circus wedding on elephants, the talent contest at the Ritz cinema and the football and cricket teams. This book is sure to be warmly received by Billericay residents and local historians throughout Essex.
