The Heritage Centre has been turned back in time recreating memories of the local area reminiscing about the past and focusing on the future.

As part of the school summer holidays and alongside the exhibition preparation ‘The Florrie’ ran a four week photography course with the help of Liverpool photographer Paul Jamieson. Taking the children around the local area to take pictures for the exhibition so that their work can be put on display showing the comparison to what Dingle looks like now to what it looked like then.

“The idea behind the exhibition is to create long lasting memories for our local community, bringing people together and teaching the children the Heritage of their city. It has been fantastic working with the young and the old. I am very proud of what the children have achieved through their photography and what they have learnt” said Heritage Officer Stephanie Oloughlin.

The exhibition includes images from the number 3 bus, Liverpool overhead rail way, the pubs, the streets and everything in between. It tells the story of what Dingle use to be like through a vast amount of photography.

Also included in the exhibition is an old recreated shop front that use to be Edwards Confectionary in Dingle, as well as street signs, stories and images from families who lived on Mill Street.

The exhibition will consist of over 100 photographs creating long lasting memories and a trip down memory lane is not to be missed.
