JOURNEYS IN TIME

Lambeth Archives is a local authority archive based in south London. It holds an amazing collection of old photos, personal and public records.

These are the records of real people who lived in the area.

Through this project we have chosen to tell the stories of children and young people who all made journeys to or from Lambeth in the past. Then you can add the story of your family.

There is Charles who went all the way to Australia in 1850 to work as a shepherd ( although he missed his family & wrote to ask them to come to live there with him.)

Maria from Portugal made hats for a living but often went next door to play with her baby niece

Africa was a runaway slave three hundred years ago. Did he hide out with vagabonds in Vauxhall Gardens when he ran away with the acrobats and minstrels ?


AFRICA. 1678:

Africa : RUNAWAY SLAVE BOY

AFRICA

This is not Africa but a 17th century picture of a servant boy redrawn by N.York
