Ards and North Down - a postcard view of the past

04 February - 25 February
Step back into the past via the medium of old picture postcards. See the towns and villages of Ards and North Down going back over the 20th century to days when the pace of life was much more sedate.

Do you remember the age of steam trains, pony rides on the beach, Bangor seafront, the Ballywalter lightship, or the Whale's Jawbone Arch near Portaferry? Really going back, there are images of old mills at Millisle and Ballyhalbert and sizeable boats on Strangford Lough. Old transport is also well represented. All these pictures are from the postcard collection of Desmond Rainey and will be presented in an exhibition by Comber Historical Society.
NB. This map is based on the postcode and so may not reflect the exact location.
