Local history digitised and enhanced
|Photograph of the three volumes of Mike Allen's Images of North Mymms series|
Mike, along with local historian Peter Miller, curate an ever-growing collection of images currently containing more than 4,000 old photographs and postcards.
Most of the images were loaned to Mike by local residents, including large quantities by the late Ron Kingdon, local historian Peter Miller (who curates his own collection), the Nott family, and images from the NMLHS files. There are some images in the collection which Mike Allen took himself.
In all cases where the images are used on the NMHP we will add details the source of the images. Please read our copyright policy.
Hi Mike, I am looking for a particular painting in the North Mymm's Collection. How would I go about searching this? Many thanks!ReplyDelete
Which particular painting are you interested in?Delete
I was wondering if you have any other images of the Marshmoor sidings area in the late 1950-early1960's. I am proposing to make a model railway layout of the area. Specifically photo's of the buildings would be helpful. Also the photo you have of " London John" captioned as 1972 should be 1962 as I started my apprenticeship at Mowlems in 1972 and had seen the Hunslet 0-4-0 dh shunter in use during many years of train spotting at Marshmoor previously

Hi. I'm interested if you have any information on the Coopers who worked at North Mimms Park in the early 1900s. I believe one was a gamekeeper and his wife was a cook. These would have been my great grandparents. I think they lived in a cottage off Tollgate Road.ReplyDelete
Yes, we do have some images. Please send your email address.Delete
