On Sunday the 16th of July myself, Tom, Harry, Jack, My Mum and step-Dad headed to the Black Country living Museum for a 1940’s day. It was actually on all weekend but we just went for the one day. It’s not compulsory to dress 1940’s but we chose to (as many others did) because we love to.
I love this photo I captured of Jack, Harry, My Mum and step-Dad. I put it in black and white for a more realistic effect. I’m going to get it printed and up on the wall.
When there it feels like you have been taken back to a village in the 1940’s. It covers 26 acres and has houses you can look in, vehicles, fairground, stalls, and a complete street with a pub and shops plus much more.
When had fun at the fair
We waited 40 minutes for fish and chips but they were so worth it. They tasted amazing!
We watched a re-enactment of a fire being put out caused by a bomb.
I had some victory rolls put in my hair
And we watched a Lancaster bomber flypast which was incredible and left me quite emotional.
And it was just an all round fantastic day of walking around, singing, dancing and having fun. I will definitely be returning next year!
