David Rose

Local historian David Rose reveals some of the fantastic local newspaper and magazine cuttings, photographs and illustrations, contained in Scrapbook A, one of a number of volumes in Guildford Institute’s archive collection.

Compiled in the late 1920s, the scrapbook is a wonderful glimpse into the history of Guildford and its town centre, as perceived at the time. This illustrated talk will include plenty of cuttings and images from the scrapbook, which promises to be a local history talk like no other!

The GI Library will be open before the talk from 1pm.
