West House and the Heath Robinson Museum is the subject of Hounslow and District History Society's first virtual public meeting of the new season. It is on Tuesday 28 September 2021 at 7.30pm. The lecturer is Ruth McNeil, a volunteer at the museum, in the Memorial Park, Pinner. The illustrated talk will cover William Heath Robinson, the man, his art and the museum. Heath Robinson was one of three brothers. He was an excellent illustrator of other people's books (eg The Water Babies, The Arabian Knights, Tales from Shakespeare) as well as a writer and illustrator of his own such as Uncle Lubin. He lived in North West London at the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th centuries.
Heath Robinson is better known for poking gentle fun t the world as a social commentator and humourist. He drew many strange contraptions but never built any.
The museum opened in October 2016, the first brand new one in London for over 40 years. It will be well worth visiting.
