NEW Buckenham is to look at its past through old photographs. An exhibition of about 200 old postcards, family snaps and press pictures will be on display in the village hall on Saturday. Sponsored by the New Buckenham Society, the images recall the village up to 100 years ago and include pictures of some of the people who lived there.
The Society has a growing archive of documents and photograph and hopes to add further to its collection by encouraging people to look through forgotten family photographs.
Organisers Ken Gee and Charles Oxley said: 'So many old photos taken in the village end up being discarded. This is a tragedy, because they can make up a wonderful visual history that will be of huge interest to future generations. Old black and white prints are particularly valuable because they can be copied and enlarged very successfully'.
The organisers hope that visitors to the exhibition will bring their own old photographs of New Buckenham and its people, perhaps to have them copied for the archive.
