The Geoff Webb Collection was on photoloca but is now at The Herts Memories Website

The Geoff Webb Collection is being made available (Herts Memories.

On the Herts Memories website it can be fairly difficult to find the photos you are looking for, as they come up is lists without the pictures. However, Geoff Webb has found a better way is to go into Google, then Images, then followed by the name you are researching, i.e. Redbourn Junior School. Then thumbnails will come up so that you can see which picture you want. Then click that photo and it will transfer to Herts Memories with all the details.
