Old Photo Album Display

Photo Album Display
Recently the school where I work celebrated its Centenary and so there was a lot of activity going on putting up displays and I thought I would show you one of mine as a bit of change from cards etc.

The original albums
The original photo albums, dating back to 1911, were too delicate to have on display, so as this display was for the PE Department I photocopied all  PE related pictures from them and then replicated the albums and pages they were in/on as best I could.

I made and covered boxes, and then dated them to put the albums in and people could take them out to look at and handle.

The border of the panel  was made from more modern photocopied photos to add a then and now theme.

Finally to add dimension and accentuate the sporting theme I’ve put four plastic trophies that I found in a party shop on little podiums near the top and two sets of the Colours the girls are awarded with at the end of the year at the bottom.
