Past exhibition: Rural life in the 1940's

This unique exhibition takes a nostalgic look at a way of life that vanished quickly after the war.  

This exhibition is based on the late Andrew W Allen’s book ‘Farming in Co Antrim before and during the Second World War’.  Andrew spent 40 years as a teacher and later became the Historical Research Officer for Ballymena Borough Council. The exhibition features a range of objects from the museum’s collection, relating to rural life in the 1940’s.
