From ‘House Histories’ to ‘Online House books’ – Chimni
Please note: Revised date due to venue double booking
Inspired by the recent BBC 2 show ‘A House Through Time’, local residents in W12, W6, and W3 are running their own ‘house history’ projects, helping discover the amazing stories of the people who owned and lived in their homes over the years.
Local tech company Chimni – an Askew Business member – is helping participants to scan and ‘digitise’ this wonderful treasure trove of documents and photos to create unique online records. As part of these project, people are encouraged to dig out old photos, documents and deeds and share any interesting finds among the groups. Chimni is showing people how to share old photographs by email and social media and to build them into online records using Chimni’s online log-book system.
