Welcome to
HAMPSTEAD GARDEN SUBURB
  • The Raymond Lowe collection of postcards

    A wonderful collection of Suburb postcards, The Raymond Lowe Collection, has recently been added to the HGS Virtual Museum. These cards tell the story of the Suburb's development from its very beginnings with views of its buildings and street layout. It also traces the history of one particular extended family of early residents and their neighbours and friends, some of whose descendants still live here today.
Hampstead Garden Suburb is located in North West London, England, approximately 7 miles from the centre of London. Founded in 1907 by Dame Henrietta Barnett, it is internationally recognised as one of the finest examples of early twentieth century domestic architecture and town planning, and home to approximately 13,000 people.
