The organisers say of the exhibition:

2014 highlights a milestone in world history. Over the last 100 years we have witnessed massive change in how we live and interact with each other. There have been many developments in technology informing how we live out lives. Seeing through the century takes us inside the stories behind these years.

Seeing through the century will run this week until 15 November 2014, split over three city centre venues: Carlisle Railway Station – waiting rooms and footbridge The Citadel – including the city’s old courtroom and cells and 39 Lonsdale Street.
