Historical information

One of a group of slides taken by members of the Society of built heritage in Kew in 1979-80. The selection of subject matter reflects the priorities of the period. The colour of some slides has degraded.


The slides represent a snapshot in time of built architecture in Kew, much of which has changed in the forty-plus period since they were created.
