Swindon Heritage Magazine is Out Now with the Spring 2013 edition in Selected Shops Now

And a very slick, professional magazine it is.
Look out for the cover:
It advertises itself as 'The quarterly magazine for lovers of local history.'
There are many fascinating articles inside, I was particularly drawn to an article about Enid Mitchell, a notable sculptor, in 1979, she completed a study of Victorian and Edwardian decorative ceramic wall tiles extant in Swindon. Her thesis entitled 'Art Nouveau Porch Tiles in Swindon, Wiltshire', the original document was donated to the library's Local Study Archive in 2011.
Here is a photo of Enid Mitchell taken by Mark Child:
And of some of the tiles, photo again by Mark Child:
