  3. 3. • Image of House
  4. 4. • Had been ‘dabbling’ with this research for a number of years – result was 52 houses • Centenary of Armistice focussed by thoughts • Applied for funding; successful but still library funds were needed (printed 150) • Very tight schedule to meet November deadline • In-house designer; local printer • Hugh amount of work but happy that I have ‘done something’ with the research • More houses have come to light since
