During this talk Phillip will share his research carried out from material held in the London Metropolitan Archives and personal remanences including some in the archives of St Alban’s Church North Harrow. Phillip will cover everything from the coming of the railways and the North Harrow development after the First World War including its station and railway bridge. The talk will then move forward comparing West Harrow during 1913 and then towards North Harrow in the Second World War and then end with showcasing the area during the 1950s.
