Blended images combining photographs from the aftermath of a Zeppelin raid on Woodbridge in 1915 with the modern day scenes are the centrepiece of a striking new display.
The exhibition at University Campus Suffolk, presented by the history team, also includes a blended photograph of the funeral which took place after the bombing on the night of August 12.
The town was targeted by a Naval Zeppelin L10 that evening. Six people were killed and 23 injured.
As well as the images, people can view extracts from the diary of teenager Ruby Hayward, who witnessed the events of that “terrible night”. The free exhibition, which has also been supported by Woodbridge Museum, is showing in the foyer of UCS’s Waterfront building until November 12.
History lecturer, Edward Packard, said: “It’s quite striking visually but we have noticed since it has been up that people are looking at the pictures and then reading what it was about.”
