"This book has excellent color and black and white photographs both of allotments, but also the posters and postcards that were used to promote or make fun of allotments. My grandparents, and great grandparents worked allotments and this book does a good job of putting them into context. I learned a lot from this slim book and can recommend it." —Peter Milner, British Interest Group of Wisconsin and Illinois
