The Yellow Caravan Book Launch St. Helen Bishopgate Norwich

December 2019

In August 2019 the author and family genealogist Juliet Webster, accompanied by one of Honor Elwes’s great nephews, the photographer Ben Elwes, follow the 1912 route of the Yellow Caravan. Based upon historic documents, photographs and a poem written by Honor the book retraces the journey 3 young women made camping around Norfolk. In doing so the publication encapsulates the spirit of the adventure they had together over 100 years ago, when such activity would have been most unusual.

Monday Market and Recording Equipment

June 2019

A proposal has been made to BBC Voices at The Forum in Norwich: people involved with Monday Market will be invited to talk about photographs in the book. The objective is to explore how a single image can be a way of starting a conversation that might uncover stories about the market’s history through personal anecdotes; in some cases this will involve people featuring in the photographs. It is intended that the proposed recordings will introduce a new dimension to the work through the recorded voice. If the work succeeds it may be used on the local radio.
