The YHS annual exhibtion will be held during Festival Week (Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th June), in the Mission Hall from 10am-4pm daily.
The aim is to show some of the changes that have taken place in Yetholm over the last 100 years - some of them good and some of them not! We have tried to use some of the less well known images from our archive, as well as some modern photographs. For example the recently discovered postcard shown above shows the village green in Town Yetholm, presumably very shortly after the Wauchope memorial was erected in 1902. No other copies of this image are known. The photograph below shows the same view today. A greener scene - though the the bicycle leaning against the wall in the first image has been replaced by a rash of parked cars.
We hope to have the exhibition manned for much of the time and in those periods books, DVDs and other Yetholm-related material wil be for sale. Entry is free - everyone welcome.
