3. THE ARCHIVE ROOMArchive room display

This room contains the current special exhibition, which for the year 2010, is
based on World Wars I & II. The theme is the armed services, civilian,
voluntary and youth organisations. There is a second small exhibition on lost
landmarks of Minehead in bygone days. The room also houses the West
Somerset Photographic Archive in around 60 albums covering events, people
and places from the 1880s up to the 1960s, together with local newspaper
cuttings and advertisements for the period. Further items of general interest
are on view and also a wall screen scrolling historic pictures of rural life and
places in West Somerset.
