Historic Photo Group

Arising from the Club members’ digitising of several thousand glass plates held by Maidstone Museum (and subsequently various other museums and private collections) this group requires volunteers willing to take photographs from the locations used to take the original glass plate images. This involves, in most cases, some research finding these locations. Once taken, the new image can then be placed alongside the original, together with any interesting information that is gathered, on the Kent Photo Archive web-site. For more detail contact the club

Further Details  for each group are available from any committee member on Club evenings.
