A Stirling Christmas

27 October – 7 January

Old enough to remember etch a sketch? Maybe not. How about a commodore computer or your first mobile? Or are you so old that you received the Stirling Observer Christmas Annual or the Stirling Annual from the Drummond Tract Depot? You may even reminisce about wooden toys or a doll’s pram from the Stirling Perambulator factory.

This exhibition from the collection of the Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum will bring back memories of your childhood regardless of the decade. It includes images of Stirling Christmases for the last 120 years with old wooden toys, games, Christmas cards, dolls and decorations. We even have some very recent additions in computing and mobile phones. You can even sing along to 1920’s recordings of your favourite Christmas songs.

Christmas is starting early and staying late…
