Winter 2017 Selection from Our Archives.(Prev Dip)   (Next Dip)

Our theme this time is a bit different, we feature photographs taken by the late Jim Codd. Jim worked at Carrow Works as graphic designer and loved photography and painting, many of his photos of the River Wensum at Norwich were taken during his lunch break.
