A new exhibition at Lowestoft will explore the residents and workers at the town’s port through the use of photography.
The Lowestoft photo exhibition aims to feature photos that show fish market scenes, port workers, fishermen, and the whole hustle and bustle of port life from the 1960s to the present, and there are set to be over 15,000 prints present. It also endeavors to depict the South Pier as it was in the Victorian age right through to the present.
Once Lowestoft’s economic heart, the port now attracts cargo from across the world. The Lowestoft photo exhibition is set to occur in the Lowestoft Record Office, which can be found on the first floor of Lowestoft Central Library in Clapham Road South. It is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am to 5.30pm, Tuesday from 9am to 7pm, Saturday from 9am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 4pm. The thousands of documents, book, registers and photographs that it holds are accessible to everyone with the aim of research.
