An exhibition showing ‘Then & Now’ photos of buildings in Ely was opened at the city’s museum on Friday.
Ely Perspective Chairman Daniel Block introduced the Mayor of Ely Councillor Ian Lindsay as well as councillors and participating shopkeepers.
Mr Block said: “On Saturday and Sunday the exhibition was open to the public and proved extremely popular.
“Around 350 people attended across the weekend, with many people sharing their own memories of Ely in the past and also asking questions.
“We also had many compliments on the quality of the displays.”
