Wimbledon ‘Now and Then’

 3 December 2013 – 3 March 2014

‘Now and Then’, is an exhibition by the Museum of Wimbledon and its photographs curator, Simon Joseph.

Change is everywhere today and particularly in Wimbledon where buildings rise and fall, the use of areas alters and landscapes are affected. You may perceive change as a good (moving forward) thing or bad (destroying the past and its heritage) thing but, like it or not, change is inevitable.

This exhibition is about change. Fortunately, the Museum of Wimbledon holds an impressive archive of prints, watercolours, postcards and photographs depicting Wimbledon over the past few hundred years. The advent of postcards and photographs made recording the quick and still life of Wimbledon more accessible to more people over the past century or so.

You will see in this exhibition how Wimbledon has changed during the last century. Using images from the past, Dr Simon Joseph – a retired cardiologist now turned photographer – has recreated a selection of views of Wimbledon, where possible from the point where they were originally recorded. To do this he has, in some instances, risked life and limb, standing in the middle of swirling traffic where a pavement has disappeared, tackling the tram head on, braving the rush-­hour crowds of Wimbledon Station and climbing up into the cupola of the theatre – all to achieve spectacular present-­day shots.
