What's it all about
About Ely: Ely lies eleven and a half miles north of Cambridge. A small cathedral city, with a long and colourful history. The cathedral dominates many scenes, but Ely has a lot more to offer and is full of fascinating buildings, shops & industries, many of which still survive today.
About Pamela Blakeman: Pamela Blakeman was born in Ely and apart from a spell away at University and at the start of her teaching career; she has spent her whole life in Ely. Pamela started her collection of photographs and ephemera of Ely over 25 years ago. Her collection now contains over 4,000 images of Ely, covering every aspect of life since the mid-1800s.
