Barnet Then & Now

    By

    Barnet is an area of considerable topographical contrast, from the highest points of Barnet town and Mill Hill in the north gradually descending east and west into spectacular landscapes and valleys. Well into the twentieth century, like many parts of London, its physical development began to accelerate. Aircraft manufacturing hugged the Edgware Road with Grahame White Ltd, Airco, Handley Page and De Havilland joining the providers associated with flying. Today Barnet remains a highly desirable residential area, retaining much of its architectural charm. Trace these developments through a wonderful collection of archive images contrasted with modern equivalents, revealing some amazing changes and unexpected similarities.
