Seminar: A Street through Time: College Street c.1825-1925
November 18, 2021 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM at Zoom
Convenor: Robert Pankhurst
College Street only came into existence when Thomas Telford built Verulam Road. We will look at its origins in relation to Georgian St Albans and follow it through Victorian and Edwardian times into the early twentieth century. Simple research based initially on census records highlights some of the more intriguing residents and their occupations as local industries came and went.
The seminar series, which resumes in September, will remain over Zoom for the foreseeable future. To allow ample opportunity for discussion following presentations, numbers will still be restricted to 25 so book early if the topic is of special interest. For members unable for any reason to attend, presenters are always willing to discuss the topic if you contact them after the event. Invitations to register will be sent via email a week before each seminar.
