Background

This is a searchable database of items held in the local history centre based at Knowle Library. To contact the society about any item, please contact our local history chairperson Janet Eržen at archive@knowlesociety.org.uk or history@knowlesociety.org.uk

 

Searching the Database

Entering  search text in the fields above the table will filter the corresponding column ie. By Subject, Catalogue number or Description. A more detailed list also includes a further column of text. Items can be searched by combining the search fields. A further text search just above the list provides a universal search across all the database columns.

This is a large database that can take time to load. Some internet browsers may display faster eg. Microsoft Edge.
