Here are a few (read a lot!) photos of the exhibition I created to help out my local heritage centre. I was given full reign, so I decided to concentrate on the Home Front (WWII). I'm far too exhausted to go into too much detail, as I'm still in the process of finding new homes for all the stuff...... again!
If I did my job properly then the pictures should be relatively self explanatory!!!
Well maybe they would be if only they were clear!
|Coupons, Fashion, Patterns, make-up and wartime packaging...|
|Wedding dress and photos, US parachute panel, 40's suit and hat.....|
|UTILITY undies, gloves and stockings. Endura perming kit and |
more wartime wedding photos....
|Children's fashion, games, books....|
|ARP- a selection of gas masks....|
|Men's stuff! Utility shirt and braces,|
knitted pullover (from 1947- don't have a wartime one!), fashion catalogue
and some wartime packaging....
|On the Kitchen Front- Wartime packaging, MofF leaflets, Ration Books,|
Ration recipe cookery books, special margarine wrapper, pretty green scales in box and utility apron....
|...And my Winnie the WAAF with a Handmade RAF silk hankie/.stocking pouch!|
Not that you can see it, but it's really cute!
You might see them more clearly here -I'm not really sure which is the the correct code thingy to link to me blog! (Help....anybody... please!)
I suppose I must shower, and once again start thinking about re homing all my treasures.... only two more bags and a lounge floor full of stuff left to sort!
