Book reviews — April 1980

NORTH LONDON RAILWAY, A PICTORIAL RECORD
Published by HMSO 1979 at 3.50. Obtainable from the Science Museum and bookshops
This large-format hard-back book consists mainly of high quality photographs Apart from the expected locomotives and stations one finds Poplar Docks and interiors of Bow Works, taken around the turn of the century. There is a map of the system which includes small inset plans of Poplar Docks, Bow Works, Dalston Junction and Broad Street Station. Good value.

KENNETH HUDSON, WORLD INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY
Published by Cambridge University Press, 1879, 16.00, also in paperback
A GLIAS party should soon be inspecting industrial archaeology in Belgium as guests of Vlaamse Vereniging voor Industriele Archaeologie (VVIA), the Flemish Association for Industrial Archaeology. Kenneth Hudson is rather ahead of us in this volume which includes IA from Europe, North America and Australia. Industries mentioned include the extractive industries, food and drink, construction, metal processing, transport, textiles, clothing, footwear, power and the chemical and related industries. The book is nicely produced with good illustrations. Unfortunately such quality is expensive. Why not ask your local library to get a copy? Bob Carr
