Park Place, Mitcham
by E N Montague
In this new entrant to the list of Eric Montague's absorbing Mitcham studies he traces the history of the site once called Allmannesland, the 18th-century house called Park Place, and its varied owners and occupiers, up to its present incarnation as a restaurant pub. The author's meticulous research is happily partnered with narrative skill, and the result once again is a thoroughly good read. The booklet is well illustrated, with photographs of various dates, a 19th-century view, and a map.
