As any visitors who have looked through our Photograph Kiosk will know Hertford Museum has a very large collection of photographs, postcards and glass plate negatives. The vast majority of our images are catalogued and available to look through on the Kiosk but over the years some images have slipped through the net.
One example of this is a collection of 8 photographic albums which were donated to the museum in 1935 by A.J. Young. The albums were marked and catalogued but the photographs inside were never looked at and scanned so over the last two or three years our volunteers have been trying to identify and catalogue them all. In total there were nearly 1500 photographs of buildings and streets all across Hertfordshire (and sometimes outside) and from notes in the albums and local knowledge Liz, the volunteer who has worked on most of the albums, has identified almost all of them however there are a few that still mystify us and so today I’m going to share these images in the hope that someone else might recognise them!
If you do have any clues as to where these churches & other buildings might be PLEASE let us know (and if you can solve these mysteries we may have some more for you later on!)
You can click on each image for a slightly larger version and if you have any ideas, or know anyone who might be able to help, then get in touch!
