People who have saved this event:



This exhibition showcases works of art from the Southwark art collection, highlighting the lost heritage of one of London's most historic boroughs. Over the last 200 years, the physical landscape of Southwark has gone through major changes. In the 18th and 19th centuries, great movements of people came from the countryside to London and what was then the rural county of Surrey was transformed as fields and farmland turned into houses and factories. ‘Lost Southwark' will give the visitor an opportunity to glimpse into the past and to revisit a cityscape that either no longer exists or has been radically altered.
