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. Many of his glass plate negatives were given to Amersham Museum by local historian Jean Archer and by his family and have been digitised.  This display of his photographs shows everyday life and special events in Amersham from the 1880s to 1930 using high resolution images from Amersham Museum hosted by the Google Cultural Institute. It is based on an exhibition created some years ago by Jane Bowen for the Museum.
