Stuff in the post:
Woodlands Farm Newsletter - Winter 2009 - not really industrial history but many of our members are involved with the farm, and we all like it, don't we?
And it does, of course, involve Real Work. Lots of good stuff - if you don't know about it, find out about it.
London and Middlesex Archaeology Society Newsletter - a bit based on dirt and digging based research, but always with a useful list of meetings held all round London. Lots of good stuff - if you don't know about it, find out about it
GasLight - this is very bad. I don't really expect everyone to subscribe to the only active gas history society in the country - based in Stockport which is a bit far for the rest of us to attend regularly. The newsletter announces a motion at their AGM to close the Society down. What a pity!!!
And - nearer home - Blackheath Scientific Society - advertising a meeting on 18th December on the Thames Lifeboat Service (Mycenae House, 7.45).
Also reports on their last meeting - Small stationary engines - Steam ship Arabia - Wood shrinkage.
