This is a request in two parts:
1. I am interested in the history of Hartford and particularly interested in old photographs, particularly Victorian ones, but also 20th Century ones prior to 1990.This is purely for personal use. I am not planning to publish them or otherwise put them into the public domain. If you have any such photos that you are willing to share with me, could you please scan them and email them to:
along with any details about who took the photos and when & where they were taken.
I would be most grateful. Thank you.
2. The Civic Society is looking into the possibility of setting up a library of documents relating to Hartford, Northwich and the surrounding area. We are in the early stages at present and have not worked out how such a library would function nor, indeed, if it would be practical.
For a start, we are trying to catalogue all relevant documents that Civic Society members and Committee members have in their possession and we would appreciate it if you would let us know what you have and if you would be willing to either donate it to the library when it is set up, or retain it in your possession but share it with others on request.
As I said, the mechanics of such a library have yet to be sorted out. At the moment we are more interested in what is out there and what we could potentially use.
If you have anything you might be willing to include in a library, can you please email me at the above email address, this time simply stating that you have something. I can then get back to you to discuss what it is and how we use it. No need to attach anything at this stage.
Thank you again.
