CHICC goes to Blackpool!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Thursday 12th April, Carol and the CHICC photographers headed to Blackpool Illuminations to photograph some plans from their archive. It was a very successful trip and we were even treated to a personal tour of the Illuminations Factory. We were digitising a range of Illuminations plans which dated from the 1930s right up til the present day. All of the plans are stunning and we are looking forward to seeing them in Professor Vanessa‘s new book. So, watch this space! We will add some images of the plans themselves when the book is launched, but for now, heres some photos from our Illuminations tour.
