Finchley Remembered

Congratulations to Lindsay, who, as well as working on her own novel 'Do Not Exceed Sixty'has spent quite a lot of her time editing other people's memories for the second book of local recollections Finchley Remembered Part II.

This book, like its predecessor Finchley Remembered (Ed. Lynn Bresler), brims over with memories from people living and working in Finchley. Contributors recall Finchley life during the war, their schooldays and leisure-time.  They remember the shops that lined the high streets, the items they bought and the transport they used. 

They reminisce about friends, teachers and neighbours as well as residents who the entire nation remembers. Some of the stories will have been echoed across Britain while others are unique to Finchley.

Finchley Remembered II comprises personal accounts evoking a rich social history during the middle decades of the twentieth century.
