To ensure The Earls Court Project references the heritage of the area, we have thoroughly researched its history. We’ve interviewed local historians Carolyn Starren and George Jasieniecki, and delved into the archives of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
The result is a booklet called ‘Shaping West London’ which we created for an education project with local schools. It records the dramatic changes the area has experienced since its rural beginnings.
You can flick through the booklet and zoom in on the bits that interest you by clicking on the image below. If you prefer to print it out, you can download it here.
