A DVD detailing the life of the man who designed Welwyn Garden City presents never-before-seen pictures and new information.

Welwyn Garden City resident Geoffrey Hollis, in partnership with the Welwyn Garden City Heritage Trust, has created a DVD that explores the life, work and legacy of Louis de Soissons.

Last month Mr Hollis held a talk focusing on Mr de Soissons’ architecture and design career and encouraged the audience to also add their knowledge or recollections of him, which has now been made into the DVD.

Mr Hollis said: “I have consulted his family, trawled through archives online and in libraries, visited many of his sites.

“As a result I have shown previously unseen pictures of his family, and presented new information which may lead to a complete re-evaluation of his life.”

You can purchase the DVD for £3 by visiting www.welwyngarden-heritage.org or calling either of 07580 197160 or 07891 963469.
