The residents of Lewisham and their ancestors have come from every corner of the globe. Most images of these people have yet to be seen by the wider public.
Unfortunately, in a few years, many precious, historic images will be dust, especially the mass-produced colour images of the 1970's and 80's. It is important that they are preserved, and publishing them online is one way of doing so, and sharing them with the world.

    Great to hear from you.

    Sorry again about your Ghurka knife.

    I'll get all the names right eventually. It has been a while after all. Is anyone else likely to clock this photo? And I don't suppose you know of anyone in any of the other classes who had their photos done at the same time?

    Vincent (Rees) is Vincent Bush. Next to Maria Edmunds is Gwynneth (?). At end of front row next to Elizabeth Norris is Susan (?). Not sure about the other girl in centre between Karen and Ceridwen, but will research.
