Jenna Goodwin from Ash Bank, Great Brittan, wants to create a number of ‘merged’ photographs of the six towns comprising Stoke on Trent and some of the city’s villages. She does this by stitching together a modern and historic photograph of an area to give a unique perspective on the past, present and future of a location.

She says, “I hope to enrich a day or two in people’s lives, remembering, laughing, reminiscing.” She said, “I want to take it to the elderly in homes and sheltered housing, who have no access to social media and exhibits, and share with them the memories that they once made. I want to take it to coffee mornings and share the laughs and memories of the old times that I hope that these images will bring back, as these are the people that lived and worked in these areas, grew up in these houses. I know how much my Nan loves looking at these images and the joy it brings her when she remembers things about growing up in the Potteries.

By it Jenna Goodwin is talking about a Kickstarter Fund she has started  to pay for materials for over 36 combined past and present pictures to be created.
