Portrait of a Town – Guided Tours

The Granary Gallery, Dewars Lane, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1HJ

Enjoy a walk around the "Portrait of a Town" exhibition with Cameron Robertson who has curated the exhibition. Find out some of the stories behind the images and about the Photo Centre collection in general.

The Photo Centre was a photographic business which operated in Berwick from 1951 to 2012. On its closure the collection (over a million glass plates and negatives) was purchased by the Berwick Record Office. It documents all aspects of life in Berwick and North Northumberland and is a wonderful insight into life and fashion at the time.
