Wild Swan Books

The Slough Estates Railway

Jaye Isherwood

Softback  -  168 pages  -  £24.95


This is the account of how a government vehicle repair depot with its origins in the turmoil of the First World War became the prototype of a new concept - the trading estate.

The book covers many themes, commerce and railway communications predominate, but the reader also gets more than a glimpse of all aspects of life on the site, including architecture, social history, the A4 and some very well known brand names. The story is enhanced by an extensive range of quality photographs, including panoramic aerial views of the Estate.
