BBC Turn Back Time 'Flicker Group'

How has your high street changed?

The BBC is looking at how your local high street has changed with Turn Back Time: Your High Street.
UK high street's are going back in time this autumn as part of an exciting new BBC Learning Hands on History project and landmark BBC One series.
We are encouraging families to engage with local history by uploading your picture to the BBC's Flickr group.
We would like you to upload your pictures of your high street to compare how things have changed over time.

Share the memories of your high street by taking pictures of what it looks like now compared to older pictures you may own. This could be done by holding a new picture up against the old picture.

Other ways you could do this is to merge the old picture with the new or place them side-by-side.
Once you have decided how you would like to show them add them to our Flickr group so that they can be shared and documented as your contribution to local history.
When launching this BBC Learning Campaign, executive Nina Bell said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to bring history alive and give everyone a chance to celebrate their high street."
