Cambridge Antiquarian Society initiated a Photographic Survey in 1904 to record areas of Cambridge and its County that were changing.  Members travelled to every area of the county making a unique record of a vanishing landscape.  Mike Petty presents a selection of their photographs which were included in his book 'Vanishing Cambridgeshire' (Breedon, 2003). The files may be consulted in the Cambridgeshire Collection at Cambridge Central Library, Lion Yard.
