The brand-new Edge Hill campus (of 1933)

Thanks to the generosity of Edge Hill alumnus and Honorary Fellow Anne Laing, we are able to look at these amazing images of the campus during its first two years of opening, 1933-35.

Here are a few selected images. You can see them all as a slideshow or gallery.

These candid snaps are both evocative and informative. Thanks Anne!
