London Street Names and Numbering

The evolution of London street names with often hap-hazard numbering will be described, as well as the records that exist to explain their history and development.

Visitors are welcome at all Windsor meetings and events. When you come along as a visitor, you are invited to donate £3 — as a small contribution towards the costs
incurred by the Society in staging meetings. Or you may wish to join the society on the night instead.
