Window Shopping On The Past

A26Very pleased to report that as of this morning our brand new exhibition ‘Window Shopping On The Past’ is open at Theatre Severn. The exhibition is in the FBC Manby Bowdler Gallery at Upper Circle Foyer Level but also extends into the Chapel Bar. In the main exhibition space you’ll also be able to listen to extracts from some oral histories of shopping in Shrewsbury, some of which relate directly to the Della Portas, whose ancestor was the photographer. The images are very fresh and it seems almost unbelievable that they were taken in the late 1880s. There’s an enigma about them that draws you in and the detail in them in fantastic. The exhibition is free and will be open until 6th January.
