The Curry Slides

LIFE IN THE ASTONS AT THE end OF THE nineteenth CENTURY

Glass lantern slides preserve the past

We are extremely lucky in the Astons to have a fascinating collection of Victorian glass lantern slides, which are generally thought to have been taken by the Reverend Curry of the Presbyterian Church in Spring Lane - where he was in office from 1892 to his death in 1921 - and who was a keen amateur photographer. It is a comprehensive collection showing life in and around the Astons around the turn of the century.

The full collection and a detailed history of the collection can be seen on the main history section of astons.net
