What's it all about
LINTON lies eleven and a half miles south east of Cambridge. A large market village, full of fascinating buildings & cottage industries, many of which still survive today.
Garth Collard started his collection of photographs and ephemera of Linton over 25 years ago. His collection now contains over 3,000 images of Linton , covering every aspect of village life since the mid-1800s. This Linton Archive is a tribute to the painstaking work of Garth Collard in the collecting and researching the items included here and it will delight and enthral you through your own journey.
Over 1,750 High Resolution Photographs dating from the 1860s to the present day, are proudly presented here for you to go through at your leisure. They have been sorted in such a way as to be a guided tour of the village. Alternatively you can find photographs from over 100 sub-categories. Each photograph is accompanied by it own narrative and creates an anecdotal history of Linton covering the last 150 years and beyond.
More than 2,500 names of all the people known in the photographs have been indexed to aid finding your friends and relatives who lived in the village. Finally, several maps of Linton are provided including the 1840 Enclosure Awards Map together with indexed list of over 500 awards. Comparison maps for 1600 and 1904 are also provided.
New functionality has been incorporated on this CD-ROM, including centralised automatic fade interface. Special dissolve function when viewing "Then & Now" images. Each photograph has up to five links to photographic categories, associated ephemera and "Then & Now" images.
No computer skills required, just load & play. If you can surf the Internet, then you can use this CD-ROM.
