Short Session at BACA

February 8th 2012 - Session 3 at BACA

Just a short session so no time to waste....

Today the students located their chosen photographs from WW2 on street view. Firstly they needed to find the exact location in Brighton that the photograph had been taken and then try to find the correct angle. This was quite a tricky business, but the students managed with ease.

If they could not find the exact location then they began to think creatively about where to locate the photograph and why the selected location was appropriate. This was apparent especially for images taken in air raid shelters and in the surrounding countryside.

Here are a few examples of the images chosen for the tour. I can only post a few at the moment as we are awaiting copyright permissions for the others. See if you can place where these photographs were taken in Brighton.

Next week we are off to the Mass Observation Archive to research narratives, diaries, posters and propaganda produced during the war. We are also delighted to have a visit from Betty and Ivy, two lovely ladies who grew up during WW2.
