Rural Life in the 40’s – Ballymena Braid Exhibition

Opening on 15th November at the Braid in Ballymena the “Rural Life in the 40’s” exhibition is sure to be a great hit in Ballymena.

 

Photographs from The Braid Website. The Braid say;

“This unique exhibition takes a nostalgic look at a way of life that vanished quickly after the war.

This exhibition is based on the late Andrew W Allen’s book ‘Farming in Co Antrim before and during the Second World War’. Andrew spent 40 years as a teacher and later became the Historical Research Officer for Ballymena Borough Council. The exhibition features a range of objects from the museum’s collection, relating to rural life in the 1940’s.”

Head out to the Exhibition which begins this month and runs until February next year at the Braid in Ballymena.
