Stories Seen Through a Glass Plate, 1916: Lewes Remembers

An exhibition of 80 light boxes in 65 windows throughout Lewes, 1916: Lewes Remembers will show work from the years of the First World War by Benjamin Reeves, grandfather of the present Reeves photographic studio owner Tom Reeves.

This will include individual and group portraits of soldiers and their families, as well as civilian life during the war, and photographs of the thousands of men billeted in the town.  To help bring things to life, the photographs will be shown around Lewes in locations relevant to their subjects.

The Lewes Tourist Information Office will supply a free map of the light box trail.

In addition to the lightbox exhibition, there will be a series of associated events and activities.
