On Friday and Saturday, the Forum, in Norwich, will be decorated with the 60 striking images to kick off our Greetings From... postcard collection.

The pictures, taken across the county since the 1940s and archived in our library, will give readers the chance to wander through Norfolk's history, from Muhammad Ali's visit to the city in 1971 and a bus falling down a sink hole in 1988.

Over the next few weeks, we will share the photographs in this newspaper to create a nostalgic record of the area's past.

Nigel Pickover, editor of the Eastern Daily Press, said: 'Whether it's the memorable photo of the Earlham Road sinkhole swallowing a bus, or snapshots of life from decades gone by, these postcards will be a nostalgic journey back through time.

In Saturday's paper we will include three free postcards, and another two on Monday, August 22.
