The aerial photo of the church is not dated but there is a lack of TV aerials on the houses, except for a band 1 and high gain band 3 on Shrivenham House. The latter, pointing towards the Croydon ITA transmitter which opened in the autumn of 1955, suggests the late 1950s.
The photo of the workmen with a roof truss is inside St Andrew's church at Shrivenham. A note with it suggests that one of the men is Bill Judd who would be a relative of the the late Les Judd, a well-known Shrivenham man from the mid to late 20th century. The way the men are dressed suggests a date of 1940s.
The print of the church was donated to the Heritage Centre within a frame. When the frame was opened it was apparent that it had been cut out of a publication that was dated Friday 4th December, 1885.
