Burnley exhibition captures town’s past and present

Release date: 
Wednesday, 1 November, 2017

Towneley Hall has been delving into its archives to put together a brand new exhibition showcasing Burnley’s past and present.

It’s Not Negative exhibition, which opened on Tuesday, 31st October, gives visitors a rare opportunity to see images reproduced from glass negatives, dating from the 1880 period until the 1930s.

The pictures feature scenes of Burnley streets, local families, playing children, transport, public events and parks.

To compare the town’s past with the present, the exhibition also includes 21 modern photos of Towneley Park taken by Eddy Rawlinson, a local resident and a well-known photographer.

Councillor John Harbour, Burnley Council’s executive member for housing and environment, said: “This remarkable exhibition will give people a glimpse into the town's past and allow them to compare it with the Burnley we know today.

“I would like to encourage people to come along and see this exhibition.”

The exhibition is going to be on display until February 2018.
