Welwyn Garden City

The Welwyn Garden City Directory for 1940

Author: (anon)

Published: 1940 by Welwyn Publications Limited

Format: Paperback 7¼" by 4¾" with 228 pages

This directory contains much very interesting information about Welwyn Garden City as it was at the outbreak of the Second World War. Included are ten pages of information about clubs and societies in Welwyn Garden City (pages 57 to 67); a street directory of heads of household (pages 84 to 139) including an indication of who the A.R.P. wardens were; and an alphabetic list of heads of household (pages 140 to 227). Glued inside the front of the book is a fold-out street map (18" by 14") of Welwyn Garden City which can be seen at the bottom of this webpage.

The full contents appears on page 5. Hover the mouse over the thumbnails to reveal the page numbers.

The book is printed on cheap paper which has gone brown and flakey around the edges in my copy. Fortunately, the whole thing is complete with no loss of text. I have used Photoshop to tidy up the edges a bit..
