The Beaney — How to get here
Canterbury seen through over 250 rare archival images from the Canterbury Museums and Galleries’ Collection.
These rarely seen images enable us to reflect on the architectural, social and cultural changes to the city over the past century and beyond – the mills on the Stour river have disappeared, there are new buildings and wider roads whilst historical institutions like the high street and Westgate Towers endure, although how we now view and use them has changed.
Please take this opportunity to examine the collective memory inscribed in the city’s buildings, roads and parks while, at the same time, exploring your personal memories and experiences of Canterbury; travel back in time with us and explore both familiar and unfamiliar sights. After all, ‘a city always contains more than any inhabitant can know, and a great city always makes the unknown and the possible spurs to the imagination,’ says American writer Rebecca Solnit. Our exhibition puts her words to the test.
