Moving to Brookmans Park in the 1950s
« on: March 14, 2018, 09:43:12 am »
Published online for the first time, an account of life in Brookmans Park in the 1950s by Dorothy Hummerstone - illustrated by local historian and archivist, Peter Miller, with pictures from the Images Of North Mymms Collection and The Peter Miller Collection.

The piece includes a newspaper cutting headlined Old Lady Is Told She Must Go. It tells the story of 73 year old Mrs Kate Canham with her "brown face and leathery hands" who was moved out of Moffats Farm by her landlord in the 1960s after working the farm alone for two years following her husband's death.
