NEW - Contemporary Isleworth DVD
The third of our popular DVDs of old photographs
This DVD of scanned photographs is based on the material collected and displayed by the Isleworth Society at our special exhibition in 2006. It features scenes from Isleworth life over the past few decades which we hope local (and maybe not so local) people will find interesting and bring back a few memories. Topics are grouped into Local History, By the River, Work Places, the work of the Isleworth Society and Miscellany and features over 300 photographs.

Review from Amazon.co.uk web site
"This is a highly enjoyable collection of memories and other stories that relate to Isleworth, a historic Thameside village, culled from countless interviews with the local people. Never stuffy and often highly amusing, this beautifully illustrated paperback, containing around 400 separate stories, ranges from reminiscences about Dutch seamen in clogs unloading their boats in the local harbour through to tales of Saturday mornings at the local Mickey Mouse Club. John Betjeman, who knew the area, would have loved this one"
