After some preliminary work, we are now ready to put together the list of buildings that we will celebrate with centenary signs this year.
We have picked out some spots that we really want to include this time out, but we need to find more possibilities. The rule is that the building must be at least 100 years old and not changed too much from its original design. As usual, we will begin the process with a walk (or walks) that often turns into a vibrant educational tour for those who join us.
The first walk this year will begin at 9:30am on Sunday 23rd March and we will gather in the square outside the Britannia Library entrance. We will be walking through the area west to Clark and probably north to Venables, in an area where many of our earliest builders plied their trade. The walk will be completed by noon and is open to anyone who cares to join us.
Our house styles expert, Michael Kluckner, will be with us to point out interesting architectural details, and no doubt one or more of our historians will be able to supply more details on the history of the area and the builders.
In advance of the walk, at our regular monthly meeting on Thursday 20th March, Michael will give a presentation of a primer he calls “H is for Heritage”. More details on the meeting will be available next week.
