It has been 10 years since Bob and Jan White opened the Showcase Gallery newsagent’s and gift shop in the centre of North Walsham.
And they have now marked the anniversary by reprinting and publishing the book ‘North Walsham in old picture postcards’, which was first complied in 1984.
Mr White said: “The book which contains 76 pictures reflecting life in Victorian and Edwardian times, was first published for the North Walsham Historical Society and features fascinating photographs which reflect life at the time.”
Mr White said he and Jan wanted to thank Mike Ling, Mary McManus and Ron Fiske, who compiled the original edition of the book, as well as Wayne Beauchamp for providing the original advert for the book in the North Norfolk News of 1984, and all their customers for their support over the years.
He said: “We also thank all past and present members of staff for their hard work, in particular the long serving key holders David Gayfer and Amy Smith.”
The book is on sale at the Market Place shop for £8.50.
