Tom Reeves: Retail Retold – Life on Lewes High Street
Tom Reeves shows images of the town and people of Lewes taken in the High Street from 1860 to 1960.
The images are from the Edward Reeves Archive, a collection of historic images from the world’s oldest surviving photography studio.
This talk is linked to the new lightbox exhibition which runs from the 5th to the 29th September 2019, featuring 80 lightboxes in windows up and down Lewes High Street.
The exhibition will focus on the importance which High Streets – now very much under threat – have in the life of a community.
Special emphasis will be given to the much more sustainable way in which generations before us did their shopping.
Venue: 7:45pm at Trinity Church Southover, Southover High Street, Lewes BN7 1JH
Entry: Open to all – admission free to Friends of Lewes members, £3 for non-members
Tea & coffee in the interval
