Photo Exhibition

A glimpse into our 150 year history

150 LogoThere are many reasons why people get involved with the German YMCA in London – be it employment, companionship, hospitality or culture, be it for a few days or many many years. Everyone has their own story.

Annual Review 2010The story of our history is both vast and complex, surviving through many difficult times. The material used for this exhibition has mainly come from the Association’s own archive of photos, minutes, books and printed programmes. Our aim is to give a small glimpse into the people and places of the German YMCA in London over 150 years, and maybe you will discover a few surprising and interesting facts…
