Slide show of photographs

The Friends of Brechin Town House Museum will be taking part in the ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ with a slide show of photographs collected from locals over the last six months.

The images will be shown on Saturday, April 7 with a running commentary from about 2.15 pm in the upper gallery of Brechin Town House Museum and follows a similar event held in December last year.

The slide show will include images collected very recently and will cover a wide range of scenes in and around local factories and other work places as well various events and individuals covering a period from the late 19th Century to the beginning of the present century.

It will be quite informal and people are invited to drop in and leave at anytime.

Brian Mitchell, Chairman of ‘The Friends’, announcing the event said that they are continuing to collect and scan photographs relevant to the town and its hinterland: “Photographs are extremely important as a record of the history of the area and we hope that more people will recognise this and bring along their old prints to the museum for copying.”

The prints are then returned to their owners.

The drop-in event is free.
