This annual national free event opens buildings to the public which are not normally open to view. This year in Knowle the church tower will be opening for visits. As a contribution to this event, The Knowle Society is making available for viewing some of its archives, in particular its always popular Scrapbooks of Knowle. These are becoming delicate books and are not normally available for close examination.
The Local History Centre team will be showing a selection of the many old scrapbooks from the archives which chronicle Knowle village life from the early 1900s onwards. Some of the very oldest have now been scanned and will be available to view on-screen.
In addition, the current exhibition ‘Henry Tonks, Surgeon & Artist’ born in Solihull, will be available to view and will be so until the end of September.
Both events take place in the History Centre, upstairs in Knowle Library, Saturday 12th September 2009, 11am-4pm.
All Welcome! All Free!
