{Visits} Radstock Museum

During last month we took a little visit to Radstock Museum. Predominany a museum about  Radstock's coal mining and local history,  they had a current exhibition of  'Women at Work' including a large display of wartime jobs etc. It really was most interesting!!

The displays were absolutely gorgeous and unlike alot of other museums there were no 'photography not allowed' signs, so I snapped away so I could share them with you all, maybe we can repay them by visiting soon?

Beautiful satin corsets and Stockings alongside knitting needles and pattern books. The Land Girl Army Displays were particularily poiniant, photos and recounts from local ladies who joined up

Following on the theme, here's a lovely group of flicker photos The Women of WW2
