Photographic Record

A recent project has been to build up a photographic record of our area, especially of buildings under threat of demolition or major development, and also of subjects not currently covered. Two sets of prints and CDs are being funded by the Society, one to be retained locally, the other to be donated to Surrey History Centre for professional archiving at their reference 7811/*

A small selection is shown in the Slider above, but Surrey History Centre has a full catalogue of all 2,339 photographs on their website, including thumbnail images of most of them:

Or visit http://www.surreyarchives.org.uk and type 7811/* into their Search box, or use their Search options to find photographs of a specific topic, site or area.

The photographers have shared copyright with MHS, and all requests to reproduce any photograph should be addressed to the Society at mhs@mertonhistoricalsociety.org.uk or to the Hon Secretary at the address given on our Contact Us page.
