Jim Franks’ Photos of Lewes. Friends of Lewes talk – Thursday 23 November 2017, 7:45pm

Marcus Taylor: An Evening with Jim Franks’ camera

Jim Franks, who rescued Fitzroy House from dereliction and lived there for over 40 years, recently passed on to the Friends of Lewes his large collection of colour slides of the town covering the years 1969-99.

Fitzroy House, the former Lewes library, was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott.

Marcus Taylor, (who delivered a similar talk based on the photographs of John Houghton of Swanborough almost three years ago) will show and comment on a wide selection which show significant events and changes of all kinds.

Anticipating a potentially larger audience for photographs that have not been shown before, this talk will be in Southover Church at 7.45pm, with a coffee/tea break in the middle.
