With support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Merton Heritage Service has developed the Merton Memories Project. This successful initiative allows the public unprecedented access to a unique collection of historic photographs showing Merton from 1869 to the present day. Staff and local volunteers have scanned and catalogued over 15,000 images, which are now available via the Merton Memories website.
Visitors can not only browse the photographic collection by subject, location and a range of advanced search options; it is also possible to order photographic prints and send enquiries. The website also provides details of heritage events and links to local museums and societies.
Heritage volunteers are continuing to research the images and add further historical information as part of ongoing project work. If you have information on any of the images in our collection, or have Merton images that you would like to add to the website, we would love to hear from you. Contact Merton Heritage Centre for further information.
