The museum is currently undergoing an £18million expansion, to include a 1950s Town and coaching inn. They have a huge store cupboard where they’re getting stuff together for it.
This next shot is of a contraption that was used by hairdressers to perm ladies hair!
apparently they would sometimes, catch fire, or blow up, and some ladies were severely burned or died!
Wall to wall retro!
Well that’s it for a look round the museum’s store cupboard, not usually open when we’ve been before, can’t wait to see the 1950’s town when it’s up and running. Who remembers any of this stuff! Not me of course, I’m far too young! 🤣🤣
Stay tooned loads more to come!
All images can be embiggened for extended perusal of their magnificence 🤣
