Anne will be showing photographs of Downham Market that her father, Ben Rutterford, took between the early 60s

and mid 70s. This was a decade that saw a lot of changes in Downham Market, such as demolition of the workhouse,

the road widening in Church Road and of course the Downham Wall.

Ben was a well-known social worker in the Downham Market area for many years.

As a keen amateur photographer he recorded many of the changes that took place.

Many of the shots include faces from the past so the audience may well recognise some people.

Everyone is welcome and there will be a question and answer session at the end of the evening before tea and coffee is served and there will also be a raffle in aid of the centre.

Tickets cost £3 for members and £4 for non-members.
