Portsmouth Girls Brigade 1893 onwards

I made a personal visit to Portsmouth Museum recently and found an exhibit about the evolution of the Girls Brigade in Portsmouth since 1893. The exhibit appeared to have been originally curated in 2013 to celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the founding of the first organisation that later became the Girls Brigade.  On display were a number of different uniforms and various memorabilia related to the various Girls Brigades that have met in Portsmouth over the years.  There was also a television showing interviews with people who had been associated with the Girls Brigade over that time. There was also lots of other exhibitions within the Museum including a reproduction of a 1950’s room, which had a lot of objects we remembered from the 1970’s a few of which we still have.
