The Swindon Society

For more information about the Women's Exhibition and Craft Sale visit the Swindon Suffragette facebook page.
The Swindon Society will also have a stall at our sale, with a display of old photographs of Swindon and an opportunity to meet some of the team and ask them questions about Swindon’s history.
From its very beginnings the Society has attempted to record the social history of the area as shown by the camera since the 1850's. The collection contains photographic material on many subjects including the GWR Swindon, Swindon Tramway system, Wilts & Berks Canal, Swindon in both World Wars, school groups, areas of the town including Old Town, Gorse Hill, Rodbourne, surrounding villages and much more. The collection now numbers 15,000 plus images and is used to illustrate presentations to local groups.
For more information see the website or search facebook.
