LOCAL historian Andrew Lamberton spends a fair bit
of his time at the county's Records Office doing research for one project or
another. And he is often accompanied by fellow enthusiast, Judy St. Pourcain. The pair view old copies of the Nantwich Chronicle and Nantwich
Guardian among other documents.
Andrew then sends me the pictures - and
accompanying details - which he captured with his
digital camera during their work. All such pictures are used courtesy of
Cheshire and Chester Archives and Local Studies.
Other pictures have been sent to me by family tree
expert, Paul Simpson. They are from the family
album, taken by his grandfather, Jack Wainwright, who was an employee of the old
Nantwich Urban District Council.
Just one point: From time to time website
visitors ask Andrew if he has a particular picture. Often he does and he is
pleased to share it. However, we also reserve the right to use the picture in
this feature for the benefit of other visitors.
If you ask for a picture we will
assume that you are happy with us using your e-mail address, including your name.
