This exhibition showcases items from AlburyCity’s wonderful collection from the former Abikhair’s department store, which operated in Albury from 1928 to 1995. Original merchandise and advertising material from previous decades connect the everyday to the consumer heritage.
Stylised 1950's representations of women promote toiletries, undergarments and vacuum cleaners, demonstrating the rise of consumer society and the development of department store shopping.
