The exhibition is designed to tie with the national launch of the Explore Your Archive campaign - www.exploreyourarchive.org - and to showcase the history of the Elephant and Castle and LSBU's contribution to the area over the last 125 years.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see items from both the university and the local archives, as well as artwork by David Bomberg and art owned by Southwark Council, which are not ordinarily displayed.
