New archive received: the Ray Sturgeon photographic collection

Visual archive for Eccles, Burham and Aylesford

The Society has acquired an important collection of approximately eight hundred and fifty pictures of Eccles, Burham and Aylesford. The collection has been donated by Mr Ray Sturgeon of Eccles. The pictures are of the three locations over the past century and a half and deal with a wealth of subjects of village life from long lost shops and other buildings, school photographs and local persons and characters. The collection is beautifully stored in albums and each picture is annotated with a detailed description of the subject.

The archive will take some time to catalogue online in its entirety but can be accessed in the library immediately. Please contact the librarian for details.
