An evacuee's suitcase
This photograph shows a suitcase and possible contents that a young lad might have had when he was evacuated in the Second World War. It was part of an exhibition of local memorabilia from the Archives of Tullie House Museum, Carlisle, Cumbria on display during August 2005. This coincided with a touring Imperial War Museum Exhibition at Tullie House marking the 60th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War. It was a good way of showing how the war affected even young children. People of all ages visited the exhibition including a lot of children with their parents or grandparents.
