Sheringham 1940s weekend 2012

North Norfolk photographer Pierre Butikofer attended the Sheringham 1940s weekend.

The whole of Sheringham town, in North Norfolk, was alive to scenes of the 1940s. From men and women in uniform from the three armed services to civilians dressed in the outfits of the 1940s

Not only was the North Norfolk PoppyLine railway station at Sheringham heaving with crowds of people participating but the whole commercial center of Sheringham entered into the full spirit of the event.

It was a photographer’s dream for all the photographic opportunities that arose over the two-day event.

Hopefully, as usual, I hope that I have captured some special moments!!
