Praise for Vauxhall – A Little History
This book wears its learning lightly; it’s a must for anyone interested in the history of south London.
Joanna Lumley, actress, writer and political activist
This is local history written with a light touch, but backed by heavyweight learning. It’s a must-read who wishes to scratch away the present and discover the deep past of this, one of the most fascinating inner London districts.
Will Self, novelist and commentator
Although I’ve lived in Vauxhall for 42 years, this lively and enthralling panorama told me much that I did not know.
Michael Leapman, author and broadcaster
Ross Davies has written a fascinating account of the history of one of the most interesting parts of London.
Kenneth Clarke PC MP
Vauxhall is a remarkable area, stretching from Waterloo and Kennington in the north to Stockwell, Clapham, Brixton and Battersea in the south. Vauxhall’s past is colourful, sometimes tragic…Dr Davies’s book has you constantly saying “Well, I never knew that”.
Kate Hoey MP for Vauxhall
