Our Collections

The centre holds a large selection of images relating to the local area. Many of these images have been provided by Terry Gimblett, the third generation of photographers to record events in and around the town.


WWI Prisoners

We do not know who took this picture of prisoners accommodated in what is now the Town Hall, but it would appear to be an official photographer. The English sergeant is shaking hands with a German officer, a prisoner is playing a violin while another is having his hair cut.
