Introduction

2011_exhibition.jpeg

Objects form the central theme of this exhibition from 2011. Since the formation of Carsphairn Heritage Group we have received many generous donations and these have been augmented by loans of objects recently found in exploration of local attics and lofts, sometimes undertaken with the alluring prospect of cash in the attic.

Many of our exhibits are now outdates and defunct but during their time were useful, time saving and considered modern. Now, depending on our age we talk about them, sometimes nostalgically or perhaps despairingly or simply question what they were or might have been.

If we remember them they often bring memories of childhood, people and events and if we don't - then there's a guessing game. Either way the exhibition proved to be intriguing and thought provoking.
