Visitors to the East Anglia Transport Museum took a step back into the roaring 1940s at the weekend.
The Carlton Colville attraction was decorated with bunting and props from the era, and all of the building windows were taped up in case of an air raid. Music from the 40s was also played out, interrupted occasionally by the sound of the air raid siren.
Many of the museum's volunteer staff dressed for the occasion as well as visitors, with entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday by the Jive Bunnies 1940s dancing group.
Willow Houghton, publicity officer for the museum, said: 'We were lucky enough to have many visiting military vehicles as well as visiting stall holders selling various different 1940s memorabilia including vintage uniforms and items of clothing.
'Like all open days at East Anglia Transport Museum, visitors could ride our trams, trolleybuses and narrow gauge railway with the addition of a free vintage bus service to and from Beccles and Lowestoft along with a free park and ride service.

'The museum would like to thank all those who attended, both exhibitors and visitors, who helped make the weekend a success. We would also like to thank First Eastern Counties for supplying the 'Park and Ride' vehicles as well as the Co-op food store on Ashburnham Way for allowing the use of their car park.'
Attention now turns to the museum's 'Dad's Day Out' event on Sunday, June 18, where dad's can have ago at conducting on vintage vehicles.
