On 4 August 1914 Britain declared war on Germany. Few people then could have imagined just how profoundly this conflict would affect the lives of ordinary people in Reading.

reading at war

Our exhibition marks the centenary of the First World War’s outbreak, and will be a focal point for our town to explore how war throughout history has shaped Reading’s character.

Displays will highlight the impact of the First World War, when thousands of local men and boys join the armed forces, leaving behind their loved ones to keep the home fire burning. Reading’s workforce, particularly women, were mobilised to support the war effort and to care for wounded soldiers in the town’s war hospitals.

The exhibition draws extensively from the Museum’s collections of artefacts and images to explore the impact of war though the ages. Earlier conflicts represented including the 9th century Viking raids and the English Civil War siege of 1643. The more recent account of the Second World War will focus on the devastating air raid on Reading town centre in 1943 that killed 41 people.

There will also be an opportunity for visitors to consider why we remember and how war affects our lives today.

Conservation Framing at its best

Just framed this beautiful fan for a customer who was thrilled to bits with the result. “Oh wow, I knew it was going to look good, but this is better than my expectation”. She also rang when she got home, and hung it up – she said she was near to tears at how beautiful it was. Now that makes us feel great !

We were recommended by Peggy from The Modern Artists Gallery in Whitchurch on Thames, to frame Calla Beddow’s artwork for her first UK exhibition in London.  I sent Peggy a note to thank her and this is her reply:
