Ian Robb introduced the colour photography of Rick Turrell at Friday's meeting at Trinity Methodist Church. Most of the images were taken between 1974 and 1980, now a bygone era, but one that included the building of Katwijk Way and Jubilee Way and which also saw the loss of such well-remembered buildings as the Stone Cottage on the corner of Tonning Street, the Anchor of Hope, Ada Roe's dairy in Clapham Road, and the final days of the town's mediaeval past, notably the remains of those buildings in Mariners Street and the Hemplands.

Ian Robb introduced the colour photography of Rick Turrell at Friday's meeting at Trinity Methodist Church. Most of the images were taken between 1974 and 1980, now a bygone era, but one that included the building of Katwijk Way and Jubilee Way and which also saw the loss of such well-remembered buildings as the Stone Cottage on the corner of Tonning Street, the Anchor of Hope, Ada Roe's dairy in Clapham Road, and the final days of the town's mediaeval past, notably the remains of those buildings in Mariners Street and the Hemplands. Although initially recording the old buildings, Rick's eye for a good photograph gave more than one scene a moody and atmospheric feel. To finish off his presentation, Ian introduced a selection of images from his own archive, including slides by Christopher Wilson and Ernest Graystone, as well as such scenes such as the arrival of Stanley Baldwin at Lowestoft Railway Station in 1928 en route to Great Yarmouth.

The next meeting of the Jack Rose Old Lowestoft Society will be at Trinity Methodist Church on Friday 10 July, which will see the return of Don Friston. Contact the secretary on 01502 564601 for more details.
