This brand new exhibition of photography taken in one of the UK’s oldest and most iconic department stores reveals a world that has been hidden since the 5th floor was closed to the public in the early 1980s. Local photographer Stephen King has beautifully captured the faded glamour of the hair salon, cafeteria and restaurant which were the epitome of style when they opened on Lewis’s 5th floor in the 1950s.  Exhibition details
