W.E: Part One
A continuing project exploring the Warner Estate in Waltham Forest. Lucy Harrison and Katherine Green collaborated on the first stage of the project, which captured previously unrecorded local history through photography and oral histories.
The second stage of the project is now taking place in 2016-17.
The first ‘WE’ exhibition took place in June 2014, at the building formerly used as the rent office for the Lloyd Park area of Walthamstow. The exhibition included photography, oral history, and a publication, and a series of events took place in June 2014. Photographs from the early twentieth century, now owned by the Walthamstow Historical Society, were used alongside other historical material related to the Warner Estate, as well as photographs donated by project participants.
“Warner” properties were built in the borough from the late nineteenth century until the mid-twentieth century, with many of the properties taking the form of distinctive red brick self-contained flats.
The project website is now being updated with information and archive material: www.exwarnerproject.co.uk
