Wallasey photos

Wallasey Historical Photographs exhibition, 2 – 27 May

Williamson Art Gallery & Museum, Slatey Road, Birkenhead, 2nd – 27th May.  Open Weds – Sun 10am-5pm

The community art space in Gallery Fourteen features exhibitions from the community.  This time they look back at historical photos of Wallasey.

Wallasey Historical Society (Wirral) is presenting an exhibition of 30 photographs at the Williamson Art Gallery from 2nd to 27th May 2018. The images have been selected from a collection of over 1500 glass negatives and lantern slides held by the Society of which 450 have recently been scanned with excellent results.

The slides have been grouped in subject areas, for example the townships of Wallasey Village, Liscard, and New Brighton. The photos of the districts of Seacombe and Egremont include the Mersey ferry terminals.  A number of the images are well known in the district but digital technology has allowed the Society to extract never before seen detail from the images and produce prints of excellent quality

Prints will also be available to purchase at the exhibition
