Shopping in the Borough – a story told through photographs

This week one of the small displays in the Blab (Landing Gallery) will explore the Borough’s retail history.

A short film will show photographs from our collection taken of shops in Nuneaton and Bedworth. The photographs provide a fascinating glimpse into how the towns used to look and the changing nature of shopping in Britain. Some shops have disappeared from our streets but others are still recognisable today. Here are a couple of our favourite photographs from the film.
