Snow Scenes Exhibition Abbot Hall Coffee House

Learn how Dr. Alexander Hall from the University of Nottingham has used the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry’s collection of historic photographs to create digital composite images. The exact site of each historical photograph was traced and a present day shot taken – no small feet when the image is of a frozen lake! We often think of the past in black and white, but these contemporary twists on historic photographs vividly link them to the present day and are designed to prompt people’s memories of snow and winters past in Cumbria as part of the Snow Scenes Project based at the School of Geography at University of Nottingham: http://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/snowscenes/2014/01/15/bringing-archival-images-to-life/ Prints of the images are available to view and purchase as part of the Snow Scenes Coffee House exhibition 17 January – 22 March 2014
