Hi Everyone,

I am new here so apologies in advance if I get something wrong.

I am looking for post WWII images and maps of Potters Fields and St. Olave /Lambeth College. Anyone with any ideas?

Best,

Bill

A good starting point would be the Southwark Local History Library. This is at the rear of John Harvard Library at 211 Borough High Street, near Borough Corner:

On the centre tables you'll find black ring-binders which contain an index of key subjects. The class references in this link to a sequence of box files and filing cabinets of cuttings, pamphlets etc. Other metal cabinets hold photos, drawings etc. and may have what you're seeking.

Meanwhile I expect some of the Council's LH publications will have something on these topics. If you speak to the library staff they'll advise you on that aspect and generally.
