AGM and Edmund Bird

Monday 16 April:  The Friends’ AGM, plus: Lambeth’s Victorian architecture

Edmund Bird, Lambeth’s former Head of Conservation, will explore our Victorian public buildings.  He will focus particularly on the northern districts and public libraries, but will also cover housing, schools, parks, industrial sites and lost architectural treasures.  His first four books appraised the 20th century architecture of the borough, whilst his new book assesses Lambeth’s rapid expansion between the 1830s and the 1900s.

NB As this is the occasion of our AGM, the talk will start at 7.10, and the AGM itself at 7.50pm

6.45 for 7.10pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone is welcome. There is no admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.
