A record breaking number of people took a step back in time as part of a 1940s themed weekend at the East Anglia Transport Museum.
Over 950 visitors joined to celebrate the 'roaring 40s' – after a successful inaugural event was held last year.
Volunteers at the museum, on Chapel Road in Carlton Colville, donned themed outfits – with entertainment coming in the form of the Jive Bunnies.
There was also the chance to view and ride transport from yester-year and make the most of a free park and ride service to and from the museum.
Willow Houghton, publicity officer, said: 'We were lucky enough to have many visiting vehicles including a Bristol LL, a Wolseley 9, a Hillman Minx, Land Rovers', an Austin Carlton and many more.
