London Streets lost to the Blitz - £6.99

Go to the eBook Shop A unique list of every inhabited place in the London Postal Area in 1939 and how to find any that are no longer there.

The Blitz was the catalyst for a huge number of changes to London's streets; bomb damage replacement, temporary housing, new builds, slum clearance - plus redevelopments and road improvements. If you are looking for somewhere that existed before WW2 that is no longer there, here is an easier and much cheaper way to find it than squinting at old maps.

All street names changed after 1929 and all new ones created from 1939 until 1966 are listed, including roads and estates of prefabs, many of which are not shown on maps of the time.

Please see the extract below for a list of the contents and some example entries.

In the introduction to my book of London Street Name Changes I wrote 'Many thousands of London streets and sometimes whole areas have been burned, bombed or redeveloped out of existence. Such names have not been recorded anywhere that I have been able to find.' This new book is a start in remedying that situation. No one has attempted anything like this before.

You will be able to find any street that was part of the London Postal Area in 1939, what happened to it and where it used to be.

If there is a modern block of flats in the middle of the Victorian or pre-war terrace where you live, you might find that it was once a bomb site, covered in prefabs. Nearly 18,000 prefabs are listed in this book under their respective locations, together with what replaced them.

If you do not have an eBook reader but need this book for your family or local history research there are several free programs (from Adobe, Amazon, Firefox, Google, Sony etc.) that you can use to read eBooks on your computer, iPad and most tablets. This is far from ideal for a novel, but works very well for searching a book like this.
Follow these instructions and you can't go wrong.

This eBook is only available from this website, regardless of claims by ISBN harvesters and is not available in a printed version.

London Post Offices & Streets was first produced in 1937. It lists every street or place in the London Postal Area of interest to the Post Office, i.e. with a letter box - effectively anywhere someone might have lived. It does not include railway stations, cinemas, theatres, public houses, museums, clubs, monuments, churches, parks or other tourist destinations.

I have taken the 1938 edition, updated it to 1939 and then compared it with editions from 1946, 1950, 1954, 1958, 1962 and 1966 to find every name that newly 'appeared' and every name that 'disappeared' from the books. These are the dates you can see in the extract, with an explanation of what happened. You can see all the names in the 1938 edition here.

Extract

This extract lists the contents and briefly demonstrates the structure. In the book, the words underlined in the extract are links to help you move around easily.

There being no precedent for this book, I had to invent the format and the way to best describe different situations. These are all defined in the book's introduction. The most important things you need to know are that 'SAP' stands for (in the) same approximate position (as) and 'later' means any time after 1966.

The text below is identical to the eBook; however, depending on the typeface, etc., that you select, it may not display here exactly as it will on your eReader. Also, pages in the book turn as normal, rather than the scrolling effect seen here.

The purpose of the book is to record street name changes. There is something to say about almost half the entries. Where known, I have included war damage plus a few irresistible asides and other blitz-related facts, such as 40 monuments to war-time people and events. If no change is recorded then every building may have been redeveloped since the war, but the road should still be where it was.

It takes about half-an-hour to read the introduction. To read the entire list is a month's work. If you have the time you can discover a great number of obscure facts about London's recent history. Do you know the location of the last 'shanty town' in London? Or that there was once a bohemian community of houseboats in Chelsea? Do you know that the entrances to London's 8 deep level air-raid shelters are all still there, hidden in plain sight? Nearly 18,000 prefabs were erected in the London Postal Area. Where were they? Are any still standing? What went on next door to Brompton Oratory throughout the war? Which 5 badly damaged roads were used to train soldiers in street-fighting techniques for the invasion of Europe?

Carry this eBook around with you and wherever you are in the London Postal Area you will be able to impress anyone who will listen with your knowledge of local history.

If you want to look at earlier London street names, see Elmes' Topographical Dictionary of London from 1831, Lockie's Topography of London from 1810 or Stow's Remarks on London from 1722.
