As part of Lyme Regis’ celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday, local museum volunteers Ken Gollop and Winnie Donno have selected images from the large collection of local photos for the 1926-2016 exhibition, currently open at the Jubilee Pavilion in the Marine Parade shelters, along the seafront.

“It is very difficult to select a few from such a large collection and in the end we chose a handful from each decade,” said Mr Gollop.

“We hope it will be of interest to residents old and new and perhaps bring back a few memories to the locals.”

The exhibition will run throughout August.
