When the railways came to town

Tomorrow marks the beginning of The Old Parcels Office exhibition 'When the railways came to town.' We are really excited to be supporting an exhibition at The Old Parcels Office in Scarborough.

The Old Parcels Office Artspace is running the exhibition from their Grade II Listed building located at Scarborough Station. The exhibition provides a fascinating insight into how mass transit changed the urban environment in Scarborough forever, and explores what's next for the town, drivers behind regeneration, growth and change in the built environment and what role the railway will play in the future.

'When the Railway Came to Town' celebrates the growth of Scarborough as seaside resort from the arrival of the first steam trains in 1845 to 1945 through a collection of historical maps, postcards, memorabilia and selected pieces of contemporary art.

As architects and urbanists drivers behind regeneration, growth and change in the built environment are always of interest. If you're around make sure to catch it!
