Barnsley History Day

A history day was held in the Civic building in Barnsley. A great day to see private collections of historic artefacts and find out about the historic buildings in Barnsley.
War time songs.
Rag rug demonstations.
Making 1940's sweets, icing sugar, cocoa, water and egg white powder.

A great collection of artefacts all 1940's.

A collection of mining lamps.
Information about the company that made the lamps. They are based in Barnsley and the company still exists, although they don't make as many lamps as in the past. The old Ceag factory is a lovely 1930's building. Which may be demolished!!!
Soldiers artefacts.

Then off to spend Christmas money.
