Opening night of Swindon in 175 Images Exhibition

On the evening of Tuesday 8 March, we were very pleased to provide refreshments for the private view of the Swindon in 175 Images exhibition currently on show in the front two downstairs rooms. Many of the Friends of SM&AG had kindly donated towards the staging of this exhibition, so it was lovely to be able to invite them along to the private view.
This exhibition is a great way to celebrate the Swindon 175 celebrations going on all over the town this year, and appears on the 175 website if you click on the link.
I spent too much time handing out drinks and nibbles rather than taking photos, but here are a few.
I'll take more of the exhibition soon.
 There were lots of people at the launch.
And some fascinating photos, paintings and objects.
Ian Wilkins, a committee member was convinced there was a photo of his father who worked in Garrards!
Do try and have a look at this fascinating exhibition, and I'll take a few more photos soon.
