an online meeting, 7.30pm, 20 December 2021
As we cannot meet face to face for our usual Christmas party with a quiz, we asked if any of our members had a local history topic on which they would like to give a short presentation. We are delighted to say that we will have a lively mixture of very varied contributions at our Christmas meeting.
Martin Daly has discovered an Italian family, the Pastorellis, who made barometers and scientific instruments and came to live in Victorian Chiswick
Giz Marriner has researched her family of Brentford watermen who lived on the waterfront just upstream of Kew Bridge in the first half of the 19th century
Nadege Forde Vidal is co-ordinating the Black Chiswick Through History research project at Chiswick House, to identify 18th and 19th black people living in the area
Adam Grounds has recently purchased for the Local Studies Collection a group of handsome ink drawings depicting unusual views of Brentford in 1905
