A museum chronicling a Suffolk town’s extensive history celebrated its 60th anniversary by inviting residents to take a look at its rich and varied collections.
The Lanman Museum, which is usually based in Framlingham Castle, held a special display at the Unitarian Meeting House on Saturday, to give chance to learn more about their town.
John Bridges, who helped organise the event, said several hundred people visited throughout the day, and many were “amazed” by what they saw.
Displays included old invoices and newspapers, photographs and wartime artefacts.
Mr Bridges said people were particularly fascinated by an old aerial photograph of air raid shelters and water tanks in Market Hill taken during the Second World War, as well as pictures of the now closed railway station.
