407. A Traik Through Time

Today a fascinating exhibition opened in the Village Hall.  

A Traik Through Time has a vast display of photos of Johnshaven organised street by street. 
 In most cases they are in pairs - an old photo above a modern one taken from the same viewpoint to show what has changed.

It has been organised by Clark Simpson and Christopher and Walter Adam.  
Clark has written a book to accompany the exhibition which is being sold in aid of charity.

Opening times are:
Friday 21st June 10am - 8pm
Saturday 22nd June 10am - 5pm
Sunday 23rd June 11am - 5pm

Clark's vast collection of scrapbooks containing newspaper cuttings about the village.
