Haverhill High Street c. 1936

Haverhill has a long history, it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and there have been archaelogical finds in the area dating from the Stone and Bronze ages. The town prospered during the Victorian times with steam powered looms at the Gurteen factory and the coming of the railway. Haverhill expanded again in the 1960's as a London overspill town and in recent years with the growth of high technology industries.

The Group's some 7,000 images dating from the mid 1800's to the present day, trace the changing architecture within the area, from houses, shops, industry and leisure.
