Project ID720
DescriptionWorking with Downside Abbey Outreach Team, the project is concerned with researching and recording a collection of photographs taken by Monks of the Abbey, Masters and Pupils of Downside School. We are currently creating a database of the 300 or so photographic albums in the archive and we are also scanning all photos to produce digital images. All of this information will be used as material for a future book whose working title is a Pictorial History of Downside.
