What is OLDMERSTHAM.COM?

While a number of history books are available which cover our locality, these books may have a limited cope, partly due to the number of pictures you can physically fit into them.

A website is not restricted in this way, and hence OLDMERSTHAM.COM was born, to provide a limitless hub of local pictorial data. Users are encouraged to browse the website, as well as to submit images to be added to the archive. If you would like to add your pictures, then please contact us.

OLDMERSTHAM.COM was started in August 2002. As time goes on, it is hoped that more and more content will be added, so that the website will become increasingly useful and interesting as time passes.



How to use the full OLDMERSTHAM.COM website

The home page comprises of some links at the left of the window, a search facility at the top of the page, and a map on the right hand side. The total size of the map is rather large so you only see a small portion of the map at a time, and you need to click on the arrows around the edge of the displayed map to navigate around.

Within this map, you'll find "hotspots". That is, areas which are clickable on. When you click on a hotspot, then old pictures of that area will be displayed. The hotspots are detectable because the mouse pointer may change when passing over a hotspot, and when the pointer is hovered over a hotspot, the name of the road or area will be displayed. When you have clicked on a hotspot and the photographs are viewed, use the scroll bar on the right hand side to view all of the pictures to the bottom of the page, and then use the "Back to your previous page" button to return to the map.

You may find it easier to click on what's new, which presents a list of all of the pages on the website, and informs you of when they were last updated.

You can leave comments for other people to see. Please feel free to use this facility.



OLDMERSTHAM.COM website developments

In December 2013 the mobile version of OLDMERSTHAM.COM was launched. The website should automatically detect that you are using a phone, and switch into this website, although you can toggle between the websites, whatever device you are using.

During 2017 OLDMERSTHAM.COM was changed to an HTTPS secure site. All data is now in a database to provide a more feature-rich experience. The website was enlarged to allow a border each side of the images. The search facility was rewritten so that the database is searched directly rather than using Google's search. A button was added to find your current location for search.
