Barking & Dagenham from old photographs

by Sylvia Kent | 15 October 2014
Category: General History
Synopsis
Barking & Dagenham, both large suburban areas of East London, have been closely connected for a very long time. Historically, Barking was a fishing and agrarian settlement in the county of Essex and formed an ancient parish. What followed was a major shift in economic activity towards industrial development, and Barking eventually became part of Greater London. Barking was William the Conqueror's home in the eleventh century, and is also home to Barking Abbey, an important centre of religion. For centuries, Barking's fishing port was one of Britain's most famous. Like Barking, Dagenham was also a farming village and remained mostly undeveloped until the London County Council began construction of a large estate, and a major population rise soon took place. When the Ford Motor Company opened in 1931, Dagenham was recognised throughout the world. In this nostalgic look back at Barking & Dagenham, Sylvia Kent presents old photographs and postcards that are sure to evoke memories of the borough's past, with glimpses of some of the well-known personalities who have lived and worked within its boundaries.
