    This major legacy partnership between the John Laing Charitable Trust (JLCT) and Historic England (HE) will see a host of Company archive materials used to provide education and research materials for the nation.

    The project, due to launch in November, will also bring generations together through an outreach programme in schools and provide jobs and training.

    At the heart of the project is the John Laing Photographic  Collection. Experts at HE are selecting and scanning in 10,000 images which demonstrate John Laing’s part in rebuilding this country after World War II.

    The images provide an insight into the architectural, social and technological changes in England during half a century through the prism of reconstruction.
