Thomas J Barratt (1841-1914), known as 'the father of modern advertising' for his work promoting Pears Soap, was also a great local historian and author of The Annals of Hampstead (1912). This book presents 62 previously unpublished photographs taken by Barratt in the 1880s; together with Hammerson's introductions and commentaries and juxtaposed with recent photographs, they reveal much about 19th-century life in this famous part of London.
