Once reputed to be the largest village in England, the town of Totton is now combined with Eling to form a bust town of nearly 30,000 people in the ancient parish of Eling. Using over 85 pairs of images, this fascinating volume compares old images of Totton’s streets, shops and buildings, such as Hatchers’s bakery and the Steam Mill at Eling, with modern equivalents in this busy town. It also shows the people of Totton and Eling at work and play, holding Coronation and Jubilee paties, staging concerts and playing football. This fascinating volume highlights some wonderful comparisons that will doubtless appeal to both the long-established resident and the interested visitor.
