Local History talks continue

The highly committed and creative team at Lambeth Archives have more lock-down talks to offer : their repertoire is not exhausted yet.

The July and August programme (above)  includes a talk about life in Lambeth during the War, a virtual history walk from Vauxhall to Camberwell, an account of the bitterly contested campaign of the 1880s  to create those free libraries in Lambeth  that we now all take for granted, and a look at the growth of the borough’s southern suburbs.

Log in details for talks will be sent out two days ahead.

Although they have not run out of topics to talk about, they are slightly changing the way they deliver them. After next week’s talk, Home Front, Lambeth in World War II, the programme will become fortnightly and will always be on a Thursday evening at 6.45 pm.

But  the programme will be put  on hold from mid-August as they switch to preparing for the Lambeth Heritage Festival, which will also be an online programme.

Finally, Jon’s talk of last week, Before and After Windrush, a history of the Black community in Lambeth, is now available to be listened to as a recording at https://www.instagram.com/tv/CB3HgWnn-O-/?hl=en
