Celebrating 50 years of the Victorian Society, ‘Saving A Century’ is a newly opened exhibition at the Blackpool Winter Gardens showing images from around the country of the best Victorian and Edwardian buildings, structures and environments that the Victorian Society has campaigned to save. Open until 30 June, the exhibition has been guest curated by Gavin Stamp and illustrates using archive material the Society’s success in changing public attitudes towards the architecture of the nineteenth century, but also some of its failures. Amongst many others, St Pancras, Liverpool’s Albert Dock, the Foreign Office and the much-regretted Euston Arch will be on display. The exhibition demonstrates the Society’s continued importance to heritage in the twenty-first century.
