Hi All

I have been working on some further updates to the Ludham archive website, and I am sure they will be of interest to Forum Members.
The Ludham Archive has been given access to the photograph albums of the Boardman Family. I am sure that many of you will know that Edward Boardman built How Hill House as his holiday home. The albums contain thousands of photographs, many of them superb quality. they show the Boardman children growing up and many are taken at How Hill or other parts of the Broads.
It will take some time to complete the process of scanning all the photographs, so for now, I have put a selection of early photographs on the archive group website. This will enable those interested to get a first look at the collection. Only 1906 to 1910 photographs are on the site so far, but more will follow.
These photographs are amazing and if you have an interest in Broads history, I can recommend them.

Go to www.ludhamarchive.org.uk and click on the Archive Photographs button.

As always, I would be interested in your feedback. Do you find these photographs of interest? Would you like to see more etc?

Nigel

Glad to hear that you found them interesting. I just think they are fascinating.

Anyway, I have now added two more albums covering 1912 to 1914. This includes the 1912 floods and lots of interesting pictures of boats and the rivers round How Hill.

Unfortunately, I can only give you a glimpse of what these albums contain. Quite a lot of the rest is not very relevant to the Broads or to Ludham as it shows the Boardman family on holiday or at their main house in Norwich. Despite this, the pictures are full of interest.

The next album is scanned and I will put it onto the site in the next day or two. After that, there will be no more until the end of February when we get the next batch for scanning. There are some real treats in the 1914 - 1915 album, but that will have to wait for another day.

Nigel,

Ludham is one of my favourite and most visited places on the northern rivers. The archive web site proves what I've always thought about the village; that it has a  really strong community feel to the place. Fantastic web site Nigel, I'll be looking at it again and again.

Steve.

I know me pointy end from me blunt end!

Hi All

I am glad to hear that you are all enjoying the photographs.

Steve - You are right about Ludham having a strong community. There is a lot going on here.

Anyway.... I have now added the last Boardman album that I currently have 1915-1917. Some great photographs in this one. I have chosen just 25 of them. Look out for the Hunstanton Lifeboat being launched and the Fire Drill at Carrow Works. Some good ones of How Hill including the extension being built. Much more besides.

I have also added a new page on our ongoing New Textile Project. There is some really stunning needlework being done by Archive Group members at the moment. If anyone is interested in joining in, there is scope for more. this is under the "Interesting Stuff" button.

That's it for now. More Boardman pictures will follow later in the year.

Absolutely stunning photos Nigel and well done with the website! What a great privelage to be allowed acces to the Boardman albums which provide a fascinating glimpse into Broadland in the early part of the 20th Century. Some fabulous broads scenery and family shots but I also find the pictures of the estate workers extremely interesting, and the images of the 1912 floods are incredible!!

I think my favourite photograph has to be the picture of the twins playing at How Hill staithe with their model boats from the 1913-1914 album - complete with a beautiful jetty and buildings stretching out onto the river!

Superb stuff and I shall look forward to seeing the rest!!

Just to let you know that I have added another page to the site on the subject of World War 2 in Ludham. If you know where to look the evidence of wartime Ludham is all over the place and Margaret Watts has done a good job with this page. It's under the "Interesting Stuff" button.
