A view of Georgian Wandsworth from the fields and meadows to the east of the town; Queen Mary visiting a school in Putney in 1920; scurrilous banter during a Vestry election in 1860s Battersea. These are just some of the delights to feature on a CD of images from the research ephemera collection of the Wandsworth Historical Society.
Using the latest scanning software, thirty carefully-chosen items from the many rare and fragile objects in the collection have been digitally copied so that a whole new group of history enthusiasts can admire them once again. The disc also contains a four-page descriptive catalogue which you can easily print out to make your appreciation of these gems even more complete.
The Society’s Thirty Gems from the Collection CD costs just £5.00 plus £1.00 to cover post and packing. Order your copy from WHS, 119 Heythorp Street, London SW18 5BT or by emailing for more details. Cheques should be made payable to the ‘Wandsworth Historical Society’.
