SWOP - Sharing Wycombe's Old Photographs

UPDATE: More than 300 images have been added from Ron Goodearl's collection of negatives. The majority cover the New Year parties at the start of 1954, but also some more of Hoover's factory, and the interior of Wooburn Grange (later famous as 'Fawlty Towers'). This batch of photos take us past the 28,000 milestone!

To browse through these new additions, type latest batch in the first Simple-search box.

'Intelligent' Search: The Simple Search now automatically copes with common abbreviations (e.g. rd and road) and looks for both singulars and plurals (e.g. lorry and lorries). You should normally leave it switched 'On' - rarely, it may be too clever(!) - switching it to 'Off' reverts to the old SWOP simple search.
