1914, Home and Away – an exhibition at Loughborough Library

11 February 2015

Loughborough Library Local Studies Volunteers and Carillon Museum Volunteers held a joint exhibition at Loughborough Library from the beginning of December 2014 through to the end of January 30th 2015.

The exhibition focused on Christmas 1914 from the point of view of local men serving in the forces, as well as the parallel experiences of Loughborough people at home.  It was put together with items from the Carillon Museum’s collections, copies of texts and documents from the Library’s Local Studies Room and articles and photographs loaned to the Library by private individuals.  The exhibition was very well received and brought a constant stream of visitors to the Library.
