Museum of Croydon

The Croydon moving image collection gives a good overview of various aspects of the history of Croydon in the twentieth century. This ranges from early footage of the fire station at Park Lane (not the Keystone Cops!) to scenes of Croydon life in the 1920s and during the dark days of the Second World War. There is also footage of the post war reconstruction and the celebration of Croydon's Millenary (1000 years of the Parish Church of St John the Baptist) in 1960.
