Memories of the actress Diana Dors are being sought by a researcher for a project on the famous former town resident.
Ian Payne is putting together a professional scrap-book on the blonde bombshell, dubbed 'the English Marilyn Monroe', based on pictures and articles from film magazines.
The 48-year-old is appealing for anyone who knew or met Dors to get in touch and share any anecdotes about her.
Between 1954-57 Dors is thought to have lived at High Trees in River Gardens, Bray, as well as in Ray Mead Road.
The screen star also opened a cafe called Le Toucan in Maidenhead High Street - and Ian is keen to hear from her customers.
The scrapbook is a non-commercial 'labour of love' for the Walsall resident, who will donate it to Swindon Archives, in Dors' hometown, when it is complete.
