Isle of Wight to host new photographic exhibition

Tourists heading out on Isle of Wight holidays are to be given the chance to check out an exhibition detailing the island's past.

From Friday (January 14th 2011), Ryde and Newport libraries will be hosting an event called Turn Back Time - the High Street, which is a photographic history of two of the island's main shopping thoroughfares.

It has been inspired by the BBC's The High Street programme and will give those on Isle of Wight holidays the opportunity to see how much has changed on the island over the years.

As well as photographs, the displays feature a number of museum artefacts and the exhibition is set to run until the end of next month.

Some of the most interesting pictures are sure to be from when Newport High Street flooded around 50 years ago.

People on Isle of Wight holidays who want to learn more about the past of Newport and other towns could head to the Museum of Island History, which is located in the Guildhall.
