More about this scene

Caption for Cheshunt, Public Library C1955: The library, part funded by a gift to the people of Cheshunt by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation, was opened to the public in 1907. Designed by J Myrtle Smith, the library included a School of Art. Every detail in the building was crafted with a meticulous eye for design; the banisters on the stairs, the handles to the doors, the stained glass windows, all were manufactured for this specific building and to the highest possible standard. The first Librarian was Oswald C Hudson. He was given a magnificent annual grant of £14 to purchase new books. Such was the demand from the expanding population that new wings were added (after this photograph was taken) in 1956.
