Over time, we should expect to build up a catalogue of online exhibitions. This will become a summary page listing:
- Mature exhibitions, with each entry containing a few words
- Exhibitions still being worked on, and seeking collaborations
- Future exhibitions, looking for lead researchers
Exhibitions can be tweaked for evermore, to keep them fresh.
Online stuff to accompany the Maidenhead United exhibition.
Maidenhead from the air
Aerial photographs from the 1920s to the 1970s are brought together in this self-exploration exhibition. Click on the image to proceed.
We have selected 20 of the most interesting images in the Maidenhead Heritage Centre collection, captured by Fairey Surveys, Aerofilms and others, to illustrate how the town has grown and changed over the years.
Image: The Vanwall factory, and early Cox Green
Open fields now built upon, shiny new housing estates, factory sites that have since been redeveloped, the town centre before the ring road, Braywick Park in its former life as the town landfill site – just some of the snapshots in time available here.
Explore the images yourself from wherever you are using the zoom-and-pan viewer. Contribute your observations and comments.
Ordnance Survey maps
National Library of Scotland service
A superlative resource for the local historian. Old Ordnance Survey maps are now available online, reprojected to be directly comparable with modern maps like Google Maps, Bing, Open Street Map and others. Using this service, you can easily see then-and-now. Change the transparency to see both together.
