Object of the Month - July 2015


Amersham 1880-1930 as seen through the camera of George Ward

This “object” is actually a digital display of 90 of George Ward’s photographs showing everyday life and special events in Amersham from 1880 to 1930. It uses high resolution images from Amersham Museum which are now on the the Google Cultural Institute website and is based on an exhibition created some years ago by Jane Bowen.

George Ward (1860–1943) was well known in Amersham as a Town Councillor, cycle and motor engineer, founder of Amersham Town Band and a keen photographer.
