Pictures Of Past Times

The Museum of East Anglian Life at Stowmarket has many re-creations of rooms from the past - domestic rooms, school rooms, shops and workshops - presented to you here as if they are works of art in an exhibition, which in a way they are.  
























Take care.

  1. Beautiful and nostalgic rooms, presented wonderfully. The classroom is my favourite.
    I wonder if some settings from this museum have been shown in a documentary. Are there many museums like this in the UK?

  5. These are wonderful John and remind me of my childhood in the thirties.
    The bedroom one reminds me of the bit in Anne of Green Gables when Anne describes her bedroom for the first time.
