The Fleet Street Heritage Sundial is the public face of the project and is now completed.

The next stage is the development of the information panels and the

associated website. We are planning to produce at least 75 information panels, typically of 700 words or so, with two pictures on each panel.

Each panel will be linked with a QR code to a parallel sister page

on this website

The information panels will be in 3 broad groups. The draft list of

subjects is shown below. Panels finished or under active development are starred **.

We hope current newspapers will

produce their own text together with a scan of their original masthead and a small section from the first page of the first issue.

The information panels will be made available to local organisations who wish to

stage exhibitions. We are

also looking for local sites for

the long-term display of these panels

The overall plan is to produce
30 or so information panels for each of th
e 3 volumes.  We
have only just started on this
task. We have posted some examples from each volume,
and we are adding 4 or more new pages every month, so
you can form a good idea of

our aims.  Please send us

your feedback.

 

We are urgently looking for

researchers/writers who can

help us to produce the panels

for Volumes I and II.  Please

contact us, telling us from the

list below, which subject you

would like to start on. We

pay an honorarium of £100

for each completed page.
