Postcards and letters sent
by soldiers from the front-
line during the First World War are the subject of an
historic exhibition at Gawthorpe Hall.
Commemorating the centenary of the war, “Somewhere in France” will run until June 1st and gives visitors the chance to explore the role of the postcard, the effect of censorship and the unique way the conflict was recorded through postcard art and imagery.
The exhibition also features more than 30 embroidered postcards and other First World War souvenir items from the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection.
