Exhibition: Cambridge Then and Now
2 June, 10:00 am - 1 July, 4:00 pm
Come and see pictures from the Museum of Cambridge collections paired with photographs of the same locations as they appear today, taken by students of Cambridgeshire Regional College
Students studying Visual Communications at Cambridge Regional College have trawled the photographic archives at the Museum and selected from a wide range of subjects in and around Cambridge.
Each has chosen three images that depict places across Cambridgeshire and then recaptured them in their modern context. The exhibition explores change, displaying each of the original archival images alongside its modern counterpart, as interpreted by the students.
A selection of contemporary images of locations that the students could not use because they no longer exist will also be on display. It’s a unique opportunity to explore Cambridge of the past through the eyes of present-day residents.
Cambridge Then and Now will run in the Dining Parlour throughout the month of June.
