Event Description

Bertie Walshe, a former hurl maker, is 96 years old.  His granddaughter Erin discovered a box of Bertie’s wonderful photographs under the stairs and has brought them to life in this stunning exhibition, running until February 26th.

A memorable display of local life throughout the 1940s to 1960s. A quiet simplicity and sentimentality are portrayed as the images capture a moment of time, allowing the photos to indeed speak for themselves.
