The Gosport Area Facebook Exhibition (Event from 2017)
Show / Display
Fort Brockhurst, Gunners Ways, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 4DS
‘The Gosport Area: memories and photos’ Facebook Group has nearly 14,500 members from near and far, all associated with Gosport over the years. They’ve shared precious memories and over 20,000 photos online, often from private family records. This Facebook Group again opens their ‘virtual vault’ and brings some of the best images into hard copy for all to view, along with displays by The Gosport Society. Pubs, shops, transport of all kinds, roads and coastal views, public services, defence, leisure venues, celebrations and local celebrities, all feature. Chat with many people who remember those times or tell tales from their forebears. Old toys make a reappearance for children of today to play with. Will they still be fun now? Explore memorabilia such as old books, wartime and household objects, pre-decimal coins. Bring along your own old photos or documents to show around. Arrange to meet old friends here for a catch-up. And then there’s Fort Brockhurst to explore…
