THE BIRD FAMILY OF HAMMERSMITH

TUESDAY 11 APRIL, 7:30PM
We had a lively AGM re-electing the Committee and officers and were treated to the postponed talk on “Mr Albert Smith’s Ascent of Mont Blanc” by our chairman. Amazingly this doctor cum dentist and adventurer found it better to run theatre shows of his adventures; becoming popular in the highest circles including the Queen.

Keith also did a succesful talk on the postal services in Fulham and Hammersmith at the West London Local History Conference. He and our secretary sold 80 books so a great success.

Our next event will be Jacina Bird talking about her forebears who during the 19th century built much of Hammersmith including St Peter’s Church and the stone piers of the first Hammersmith bridge. The talk will be supplemented by slides and items from family collection.

So do join us for what promises to be an interesting talk at 7:30pm in St Clements Hall Fulham Palace Road near the corner of Crabtree Lane details of buses etc in the Newsletter
