Drawing upon the unique collections of photographs still preserved within Histon and Impington, this book provides a vivid picture of the life in these neighbouring Cambridgeshire villages over the last 140 years. Attractive as this large selection of old photographs are, they are given additional relevance by the factual commentaries of the compiler Eleanor Whitehead, who has considerable knowledge of the history of the a.a:ea. She has produced this volume on behalf of the Village Society as a contribution to the Millennium celebrations. The book is arranged in sections and documents the surroundings, working environments and recreational activities of the inhabitants of the two parishes and provides information about the coming of the railway and the great Chivers Jam Works as well as giving details about many well known local characters and long established families including the Pepys of 'Impington Hall'. A valuable aid for social historians and those researching their family histories, this publication will also give pleasure to those who know and love the villages and will, for many, evoke numerous happy memories.
