Camden and the Great War

A free illustrated talk by Tudor Allen

On the 8th of September 1915 a German zeppelin bombed Holborn. It was the first air raid of the Great War to hit that part of London today known as Camden. On the exact centenary of this event, Tudor Allen, Archivist at Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre, examines how the First World War impacted on life in the borough.
