Social History Project

 

The Friends of Dartmouth Park are compiling a social history of Dartmouth Park, and we have already published two books. The material collected is also displayed in the new pavilion.

We have received lots of photographs and memories from the people of the Borough who have enjoyed the
park over the years. If you have any memories you would like to share please get in touch.

The two photographs below were sent to me by Terry Price, our local historian, who found them in a collection of photographs in a tin, which had been given to him by a family who were clearing out a house. Look at the poor gentleman rowing a boat full of ladies.

There must be lots of lovely photographic memories hidden away. Have a look through your old photographs and you may find some treasures.
