The First World War Remembrance Image Project

Wednesday, 19th Nov 2014, 7pm (doors open 6.30pm)

The Remembrance Image Project is a photography project set up as part of the centenary commemoration of the First World War and is included in the Imperial War Museum’s Centenary Partnership. The project is being run by Simon Gregor, a freelance photographer who lives in Lambeth.

Over the four years of the centenary Simon is photographing a selection of WW1 sites at around the time of their 100th anniversary. He is sharing these images with others to promote awareness and debate about the war and the role of remembrance. In a presentation one year ago at TSL he shared images and the stories behind them. Now he will be showing and discussing new images, including many from sites rarely visited by UK travellers.

Admission free. Light refreshments availableA3L 17 Memorial NDDL

    Hi, this sounds a very interesting meeting. I wonder if the Friends would be interested in some photos of WW1 which were taken by my grandfather who was a lorry driver. He lived all his life in Lambeth where we have roots going way back. I have the glass plates on which they were taken.He was in the R.A.S.C. and survived the war

    Please let me know if this is of any interest to you.

    Thank you for this response – I suggest you contact Lambeth Archives (the archives branch of Lambeth’s public libraries) which might wish to access these.
