Celebration of Bill Attenborough’s 100th birthday

Members of Derby Photographic Society were delighted to join Derby Cathedral to mark Bill Attenborough's 100th birthday with a display of prints at the Cathedral, a glass of bubbly and a slice of cake. Bill is an active member of both Derby Photographic Society and the Welcome Team at Derby Cathedral, and it was evident from the number of well-wishers present that he is held in the highest regard by all who have had the pleasure of his acquaintance.

The exhibition includes prints spanning Bill’s career from RAF photographer through his employment at Newton’s Electrical Engineers to his work on the railways, and beyond with landscapes and creative compositions. It will be on display at Derby Cathedral until March 14th 2019.
