A History of Wallingford (1980s)
Here is a a wonderful video overview of Wallingford that was made in the 1980s by the then-board of the Wallingford Community Council (WCC) – Mary Turner, Reg Hearn, and Vince Lyons. In the 2000s, it was edited converted to DVD format by Karen Buschow and Tom Veith.  In 2018, the WCC gave permission to Historic Wallingford to share the video.

Dorpat’s Wallingford Walks

The video below is the result of a years-long effort of Paul Dorpat’s to collect photographs of the neighborhood. The photos are presented as animations, a process Paul discussed with Wallyhood in 2009.
