"Forget the Trevi Fountain. No adventure playground, no leisure centre, no wood to play in - just the cool water was enough."

Stephen Shakeshaft

Reminiscence sessions

Reminiscence sessions were held during the exhibition in which people discussed the events, places and people captured in Stephen Shakeshaft's evocative photographs. Here is an example of the responses to this picture:

"I have very happy memories of the fountain in William Brown Street. We would all go there after school in the summer and in the summer holidays. We would play in the fountain all day and dry off in the sun or share a towel between us. Very happy memories."
