New collections – just in and awaiting cataloguing

During May we received a fantastic collection of slides relating to St Albans including houses, pubs, churches, cinemas, demolitions, carnivals and sports covering the 1900s – 1970s (ref Acc 6062) and some 1960s programmes for Watford Palace Theatre (ref Acc 6063).

A highlight of June was the wonderful local studies collection from Bovingdon Library.  As well as photos of the village, there are some evocative images of USAAF Bovingdon and the personnel who worked there when it was an American air base from 1941 to the 1960s.  There are some original letters from former airmen to the local Bobby, PC Lord, as well as the newsletters of the Bovingdon Bunch Association.

These and previous new collections do not yet appear in the online catalogue – however you are welcome to contact us for more information.
