Great Aunt Bea lived at Arbourthorn with her husband Bill and her son. Her life was full of stories and adventures, and she left behind a mountain of photographs to illustrate the tales she told.
Bea and Bill mixed with wealthy and influential Sheffielders, and yet they lived in a council house and made their own clothes. After she passed away her precious piles of photographs were discovered, which added images to the well known stories she told. Great Aunt Bea – The Life of an Ordinary Sheffield Woman is an exhibition bringing together Bea's photographs of Sheffield and beyond.
Travel back in time to see the world through her photographs, and enjoy some of her wonderful stories, or as Great Aunt Bea would call them, "the old times". The exhibition also features paintings by artist Patricia Lane, which give life to some of Aunt Bea's favourite spots.
Open Saturday 2–7pm, Sunday 11am–4pm.
