Visitors were invited to immerse themselves in days out at the seaside in this evocative display of images of New Brighton taken by professional photographer Keith Medley in the 1960s.
New Brighton was a favourite destination for fun-filled days out from Liverpool. The photographs on display captured the excitement of the resort’s famous attractions at the time, including the pier, fairground and large outdoor bathing pool.
The Keith Medley Archive is part of Liverpool John Moores University Special Collections and Archives. For the Our day out project students ran workshops at two local community centres, The Poppy Centre and Kensington Fields Community Association. Participants shared their memories of outings to the seaside inspired by the images, which were featured in this display.
