Subject file containing short general histories of Kew, or geographic parts thereof, and timelines compiled by various individuals, some of who were members of the Kew Historical Society. Authors of content include Isaac Selby, Dorothy Rogers, Dione McIntyre and Graeme Lindsay. Other authors are not identified. Some of these histories were used on annual bus trips of the suburb during the Kew Festival. Notes on specific aspects of Kew’s history relate to early exploration, settlement in Cotham Road, the influence of the environment, northern and eastern Kew and Studley Park. The majority of these monographs remain unpublished texts. The file also contains summaries and or transcripts of talks given to the Society by Geoff Clarke (1975) and Allan Wakefield about their recollections of Kew’s history.
