'Archiving Crosby' is a photographic exhibition celebrating Crosby village,
the project came about because of the fear that the village would soon change
to make way for a new Sainsbury's, as well as the desire to make a document of
the village for the Library's archive. Rather than focus and dwell on the
prospect of change, the project documents the village in terms of its existing
spaces and offers fond memories held by the local's through a series of interviews.
This exhibition will showcase the artist's representation of the village through
photographs, illustrate the vast changes to the village from the 1900's to now and
also detail the local's memories of the village, to ultimately depict the village
in the most honest way achievable and show why our village is loved and treasured
by so many.

The Exhibition will run from Tuesday 7th-Friday 17th December, in Crosby Library on Crosby Road North.

Times will be provided at the exhibition for when the artist will be there to answer any questions or if anyone would like to have an interview about their memories of the village.
