A butcher's shop and hair and beauty salon have shared top honours in a competition to find the best Dereham Peace Day decorated window display.
A total of 34 shops, businesses and pubs took part and judges were hugely impressed with the standard of entries and the effort put in.
Family heirlooms, wartime memorabilia, old pictures and bunting were among the items used in displays.
Peace Day committee chairman Judy Rogers said: "We were bowled over by the quality of work and the creativity shown. It was absolutely brilliant."
The joint winners were Tony Perkins in Norwich Street and George's On The High Street.
Both had used a wide range of items from the period to decorate their windows and staff had dressed up in costumes on the day of judging.
Judges gave highly commended mentions to Harris Hardware in the Market Place, Costa in Nelson Place, PACT Animal Sanctuary shop in Norwich Street and I Care in the Market Place.
