Women of Empire - The Homecoming


CLICK TO ENLARGE
This exhibition IS EXCLUSIVE TO THAMES and explores what happened after the Great War. It is a sequel to the previous Exhibition two years ago. What faced the women returning from overseas, the wives and mothers coping with physically and mentally broken men, the women who had shouldered immense responsibilities, the women whose husbands were dead? Each woman wears original fashion of the era, rarely seen outside a few major museums. The curators of this exhibition have been invited to bring it to Thames to mark the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day. On Saturdays and Sundays the Exhibition will be open until 4.00pm, and Monday to Friday 10.30am to 3.30pm. Book through Eventfinda, at Thame I-Site, or cash at the door. Book through Eventfinda
