Ever wondered what Allen and Harris Estate Agents use to be?
Or what was at the junction of Cleveland Place to control traffic in 1929?
Or what St Mark’s School looked like – without the school?
Children at St Mark’s and St Saviour’s Juniors have been working together to create a unique exhibition of images and photographs for this year’s Larkhall Festival. The project, supported by Bath in Time and local author, Paul De’Ath, has been organised as a collaborative event for children in Years 7 and 4, to encourage them to take a closer look at their local community, studying old photographs of the area and comparing it to today. Using photographs from the Bath in Time collection and images from the personal collection of Paul, the children have been asked to re-photograph the scene in 2014 to see how a landscape and community can evolve and change.
This fascinating exhibition of their work will be held on Saturday 3 May from 11am – 3pm at St Mark’s School as part of the Open Studios Trail.
The schools would like to thank Bath in Time, Paul De’Ath, The Larkhall History Society and Bryan Chalker for their kind loan of historical images.
