Pets in the Archives

These photos of pets from Suffolk Archives have been collected together for members of Lifecraft in Newmarket to use in a mini project that we can all take part in from home.

How to take part:

Step 1 – Have a browse through the image gallery below. You can click on any image to see a larger version. Pick a photo that you particularly like.

Step 2 – Write a sentence or two about the photo you have chosen. Why did you chose it? What do you like about it? Does it remind you of something, or give you a particular feeling? Please let Lesley know which photo you’ve chosen and send her what you’ve written about it.

Step 3 – If you would like to, create an image of a pet or other animal that you have a connection with (this could be a photo or any other way of making a picture). Write a sentence or two about why that pet or animal is important to you. Do they cheer you up in tough times? Do they make you feel welcome when you come home? Do they make you laugh? Send your picture and what you’ve written to Lesley.

And that’s it!

We hope you enjoy taking part, and if you have any questions please get in touch with Lesley.
