    At the beginning of the 19th century, Earl's Court consisted largely of market gardens on the banks of the River Westbourne. This absorbing illustrated history explains how the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the building of the Underground spurred its development into a fashionable if slightly raffish suburb inhabited by artists, musicians and Australians. There are also brief biographies of local residents, among them John Everett Millais and Alfred Hitchcock.
