Bucks County Museum
Buckinghamshire Churches and Mansions:
early photographs by Charles May of Aylesbury
Please note this is a BAS (Bucks Archaeological Society event).
Published in 1863, just a decade after the ‘discovery’ of photography, and hitherto languishing in the BAS Muniments Room, these exciting images show many of the churches and mansions, old and new throughout the county. Many show sites we are familiar with, others less so. We will be endeavouring to show the (improved) images and putting them in context.

Speakers: Michael Hardy and Charles Boot.
free event, to be followed by seasonal social.
I am giving up my Bucks GT Christmas lunch for this, but don’t expect the rest of you to do so! Hopefully we will be able to re-run the event, houses and gardens only, at a later date.
