An exhibition at the Norwich Arts Centre of archive photographs to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Baedeker Raids
Saturday 17th March-Saturday 5th May 2012
10am – 6pm Free Entry
During World War II, on the night of the 27th/28th April 1942, there was an extensive blitz on Norwich streets, which has permanently changed the architecture of the city. To mark the 70th anniversary of this raid, Norwich Arts Centre and Norfolk Libraries present an exhibition of over sixty historical photographs showing the extent of damage. Alongside these photographs is a body of work by photographer Nick Stone, titled ‘Blitz Ghosts’, which digitally combines historical and modern street scenes, placing images of bomb damage in their current landscapes.
