Town photographic exhibition

many of the shops in The High Street are exhibiting photos from Reeves' collection of the town in days of yore. Nicely done, interesting, and thank you to all who made it happen.
However there is a cardboard box in the window of The Fifteenth Century Bookshop stating that they weren't invited to participate.
What's the story here?

maybe they just didn't have any 15thC photographs for some weird reason ! It's unbelievable I know, but nevertheless.

Any chance there might be a book of all of these ?

Oh the 15th century bookshop isn't bitter about not being involed much.

There is apparently some antagonism between Reeves and the bookshop, based on the fact that the 15c bookshop owner is pretty unhelpful to most customers and refuses to get involved in town events. So Reeves has previously asked them to be involved in other projects but was turned down or got no response so didn't bother to ask this time round.
I've stopped going in the 15c bookshop because she is just so rude.
Great to see all the lightboxes and also good to go into Reeves itself and see their archives.
Can anyone tell me why the houses by St Thomas church Cliffe were knocked down - its now a car park....(Like Westgate)

The web site is really good as well. Excellent matching of the old photos with new ones.
