A DIGITAL exhibition of 25 years of historical photographs was launched at Castle Park Arts Centre last week.
The Lottery-funded collection of photos, dating back to the 1850s is titled A photographic history of Frodsham and District and is part of the National Archive 4 All project.
Pam Keeble of Frodsham Historical Society, who have collected the photographs, said: “We were looking to find a controlled environment for our photograph collection. To raise the funding to digitise the collection we approached the Lottery funding board.
“More than 3,500 images have gone in the national archive but they are not available as yet.”
St Luke’s Primary School and Frodsham Primary School both did school projects using the photos and made booklets and CDs.
Thanks to the Lottery funding, the pictures will be available for all to see on the internet soon and Frodsham Historical Society was able to buy a laptop, digital projector and a digital camera.
The exhibition at Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham, runs until April 26 and is open from 10am-12.30am and 2-4pm from Tuesday to Saturday. It is open in the afternoon only on Sunday and is closed on Monday.
