So far we have uncovered about 1,100 images relating to the first 6-7 years of the Pestalozzi Children’s Village. 1 These form an important part of our personal stories and our community’s early heritage.
Now we have to discover who created the images and who currently owns the copyright.
- For about two thirds of our images we hold no details.
- In some cases, we have a name but the photographer is long-deceased and the current rights ownership presently remains a mystery.
To this end we are displaying low-resolution versions of photographs in the hope that they are recognised. Where we already do know a photographer’s name, it will be included.
We’re starting off with images short-listed for use in our planned book – the story of the early Pestalozzi children.
The initial display shows images of the first months of the British Pestalozzi community.
- 1,100 sounds like a lot of photos – but we’re confident there are still many more to find. If you know of any early Pestalozzi pics, please get in touch
