Explore Bangor shop fronts from the early 1900's to the present day.
Between 2020-2022, North Down and Ards U3A participated in a UK-wide U3A research project looking at changes to local high streets during the Covid pandemic. The members recorded and photographed Bangor shop fronts in Abbey, Main, Bridge and High Street then revisited the same streets 18 months later, noting changes that took place in the interval.
Sourcing images from the Museum’s extensive photographic collection, this exhibition will expand the original project by one hundred years, and explore which goods and services were on offer to Bangor’s savvy shoppers from the early 1900’s to today.
