LOCAL PHOTO BLOG MAKES HISTORY
One of our
members, Clive Simpson, a professional photographer, has set up a group of
photography enthusiasts called PIXABOUT to record local events as they happen in
CAPTURING HISTORY AS IT
foray was to the Waltham Abbey Town Show, and they've captured many fine views
of Walthamites enjoying themselves. These photos will undoubtedly become a
valuable historical resource in years to come.
You can also
access the PIXABOUT photostream and individual photos

HISTORY IS WHAT WE MAKE IT!
Winters, Waltham Abbey's best-known historian, wrote just as much in the 1880s
and 1890s about what was then current events as he did on 'proper history' -
events that happened before his time. His writings are now so valuable as
illustrations of late Victorian life in Waltham Abbey that every serious
historian should follow his example and record today's events as well as
WAHS is proud
to support Clive's initiative, not least because he is actively recording local
history as it happens. History isn't just grand events or famous battles, it's
made up of everyday life as every family historian knows only too well!
