Coming Soon | Sidney Francis: Photographs of Woking in the 1920s & 1930s


Travel back in time to Woking’s past at Sidney Francis: Photographs of Woking in the 1920s & 1930s, a new exhibition showing glimpses of what Woking was like nearly 100 years ago.

Taken by former Woking resident Sidney Francis (1891-1973), a freelance reporter and newspaper photographer, the photos offer an insight into life in Woking and nearby towns and villages in the 1920s and 1930s. The fascinating and uplifting collection of photos includes wedding parties, sports teams, Eid celebrations, parades, dancers and musicians, and is testament to the vibrant and diverse community spirit that has always been a part of Woking.
