Roadshow Tuesday 29 January Christchurch

Annalie Talent shares some vintage Days Out themed objects with the Friends of Red House Museum

...the group reminisced about previously enjoyed high days and holidays

The first Heritage100 Road Show was a lively affair attended by thirteen members of the Friends of Red House Museum, at the museum in Christchurch.

After a brief introduction to the website and all its special features, the group reminisced about previously enjoyed high days and holidays; their memories prompted by vintage objects passed around, such as a 1950s bathing costume, seaside postcards and a picnic case which sparked discussions about childhood days out on a charabanc to the seaside and homemade knitted bathing costumes that sagged to the knees when wet!
