Do you have letters or items belonging to your relatives who served during the First World War?

Can you help Hackney Museum?
We are researching a new exhibition to open in Sept 2014. It's based on photographs taken at Gibson's photo studio on Lower Clapton Road, Hackney, during the 1950s-1970s.
Did you have photographs taken at Gibson's photo studio during this period you would like to share with us? Were you living in Hackney at the time? Can you help us identify people in the photos?
If you'd like to help, please contact Hackney Museum on 020 8356 7302 or email@example.com.
