Giant posters that show
Godmanchester museum together with the Friends from St Mary’s Church have created three large posters with messages and pictures from the early 1900s.
Kate Hadley, curator of Godmanchester Museum said: “I am very pleased by the huge response we have had from putting up the posters on the vicarage wall.
“We have received lots of telephone calls and emails from people telling us that it brings them great joy.
“Instead of choosing photographs that showed empty streets, we chose to display photographs of people pottering around instead in their normal daily life.
