Lambeth Archives Open Day at the Minet Library, October 2011

Lambeth Archives Open Day at the Minet Library

This year’s Lambeth Archives Open Day was run on the theme of ‘festival’ and took place at the Minet Library, which houses the Lambeth Archives collection.

Talks, films, workshops and an exhibition of original art and photographs were  on offer, plus local societies, stands and book stalls. Here’s some photos from my visit:
