Back to the Past

Hi folks,
well today we were taken to the Old Forge War Time House for a tour around this unique reconstruction of a house set in the second world war put on by the Sittingbourne Home Front Living Society.
I have set up two blogs to show what's inside this special place which will I'm sure spark memories of your childhood if you are of an age.
On entry you are greeted with wonderful artifacts from the past.

Our hostess for the tour in authentic dress.

Some original items on show.

View of the sitting room, loved the Ducks on the wall and the Canary in its cage.

On the table ready to go shopping.

Leaflets and cards of a bygone era. 

Tucked in the corner a childs and babies gas masks together with other memorabilia of the age, note the babies bottle.

Into the kitchen with many names we remember on the shelf.

Lastly the kitchen itself in a clutter as it was at that time.

There you are just a taste, watch out for the next installment.
Thanks for looking.
Regards, Mike


  1. Hi Michael, what a lovely blogspot, it's amazing to see how the house looks from a camera. I thought it was going to be about Bletchley, when I saw the newspaper, Mrs Egg,
