Book reviews — February 1983

BAILEY NW1 by David Bailey
Published by JM Dent & Sons Ltd 1982 at 17.50
Although this is intended as a collection of art photographs, examination of the subjects reveals a surprising concentration of IA. Is the photographer really an industrial archaeologist at heart and should we send him an 'about GLIAS' leaflet? The Regent's Canal and St. Pancras station are particularly well covered. Nice pictures (59 of them), shame about the price. Bob Carr

THE PRE-HISTORY OF REFRIGERATION
Available from the author at 'Bridge Cottage', Kiln Lane, Brambridge, Eastleigh, Hants, price 2.25 + 50p for postage and packing
A gazetteer of ice houses in Hampshire, compiled by one of the Southampton University IA Group may not come very high on a London archaeologist's reading list, but this is only part of Monica Ellis's "Ice & Icehouses Through the Ages" which also contains (I am told, I have not seen it) a comprehensive history of ice collection and storage and the early development of ice making machines.
