Lewisham Family Album

The residents of Lewisham and their ancestors have come from every corner of the globe. Most images of these people have yet to be seen by the wider public.
Unfortunately, in a few years, many precious, historic images will be dust, especially the mass-produced colour images of the 1970's and 80's. It is important that they are preserved, and publishing them online is one way of doing so, and sharing them with the world.
