A Window on the Past

The app brings to life the Museum’s collection of historic photographs of the town's shops and streetscapes. Using GPS and an interactive map,it creates a window on the past from the exact position in which you are standing. Coinciding with the Museum's current exhibition “Shops and Shopping,” the images cover the period from 1880 to 1980. Over time the Museum will add further photos to the mobile exhibition.

Find out the history of the traditional, quirky or long-forgotten shops of Chertsey; zoom in to the fascinating photos; and follow a trail through this pretty market town.

This app was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund's 'All Our Stories' grant stream.
