Welwyn Garden City through maps, 1921-1982
Handside Schools Consortium
By Llinos Thomas
In November 2008 pupils from Applecroft, Lakeside and Stanborough Schools worked with a local artist, Vanessa Godfrey, to produce a digital map showing the growth of Welwyn Garden City between 1921-1982. They also produced drawings of the Handside areas
The children were inspired by drawings, maps and archive material held at Welwyn Garden City Library, Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies and Mill Green Museum. Their work was displayed at the local history event, All Our Yesterdays: Memories of Welwyn and the Garden City, held on Saturday November 22nd at Welwyn Garden City Library.
