have you any old Pictures of Downham Market??!!

Hi Everyone
I'm on the beg again, this time on Downham Market.
Small History
My Gran & Grandad moved to Lynn in 1937-38 when they got married from Downham. Last week I took my Gran for a trip down memory lane and visted the old site of her house she was brought up in [was by the church].. and in St Edmunds Church is the graves of her gran parents , dad & brother.
She lost her Dad, then her mum within 6 months of each other, from TB when she was only 3. When she was 8 she lost her 16 yr old brother from TB also. By time she was 13 / 14 she had lost both gran parents she had been living with......What a sad start for a young girl.
Her Dad, Mum & brother all died at Kelling Sanitorium

So to my point of my request......
Does anyone have any old photo's of areas around St Edmunds church.... The church by the Traffic lights as you go into downham. Or any from the town centre as I've ordered a book but the phot's aren't that big.

Also if anyone has so good photo's of Kelling Sanatorium as most TB suffers were sent here form the surrounding area.

PS.. I went to downham library and asked to see there collection but was only given slides to look at and they have no means of copying them. I was told you cannot remove them from the library.

thanks for any help you can give me

:D :D

Thanks for those pictures especially the second one, shows Bexwell Road where I live and my house is in the picture. If anyone has any more pictures or postcards of Bexwell Road I'd love to see them!

Thanks again.
