The Centenary Exhibition at the Memorial Centre on 29th and 30th April was very successful and visited by over 2500 people.
The last main line to be built in
The Centenary Exhibition showed how distinguished architects and builders developed the 'new' town and featured railway memorabilia and elevations from around 100 original architect's drawings of the Arts and Crafts style houses built at Gerrards Cross for the early commuters. There were maps, plans and photographs of the residential and commercial areas and displays by the Schools and the Estate Agents.
The major aim of the exhibition was to celebrate the work of the architects, builders and estate agents whose drive and imagination shaped the new Community and to show the heritage and charm of Gerrards Cross.
GX2006 would like to acknowledge the generous support of our sponsors:
GX2006 further acknowledge the Gerrards Cross Community Association, which hosted the Exhibition, and the enormous assistance provided by so many individuals and commercial organisations over the last two years to create this Exhibition a once in a lifetime tribute to all the efforts of those who have made the “Village”.
