    David Guyton has given us talks before, and his talk tonight is a timely reminder that we should all get our heirloom photos into good order, methodically labelled and filed. He will be talking about the hidden clues in photos that help us identify and date them, and he will be happy to offer thoughts about any photos you bring in, after the talk.

    A rather famous divorcee illustrates this talk, because criminal conversation is an ancient legal term meaning adultery, out of which many divorces, including both hers, have arisen. In England & Wales in 1859 there were 117 divorces, whereas in 1993 there were 165,018, so they are a significant feature of national life, and tonight Claire Moores will be telling us where to find divorce records and what they can tell you.

    Tonight’s talk is about the life of Lillian “Curly” Lawrence, whose old house bears the blue plaque illustrated here. If I tell you that Lillian, who was a prolific writer and designer & constructor of model railway engines, was a man, you will appreciate that this is no ordinary tale. Geoff Johnson, another returning guest speaker, will have an entertaining story to tell.

    Inn signs are one of our oldest cultural traditions, and whenever a pub is renamed something like The Slug & Lettuce we lose a piece of our history. There is enough interest in the subject to keep the national Inn Sign Society going, so we can be sure that Tony Bostock’s talk will tell us a lot.
