Salford, 4th May
This afternoon I’ve been helping out at the Imperial War museum North, after discussing the next project with BASICs photography group.
The plan is to produce another exhibition in the centre from our work over their year.
I covered the main gallery today with two fellow volunteers. The information station was set out with three helmets , a Tommy helmet used at the start of the first world war and during the home front in world war two, a modified helmet from the end years of the first world war and a modern day Kevlar helmet used by the mines advisory group charity.
We had a lot of overseas visitors today, and they enjoyed handling the various objects on display. They asked lots of questions about what was on display in the exhibition space.
