In connection with our exhibition, Ed Stephens, the Principal Research Fellow of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (University of St Andrews), presents the issue of illicit tobacco.
The exhibition set up started last week! All members of the team are working hard to make the best possible display.
We can not wait to present our exhibition to the public from Friday 13th of March!
Poster – Up in Smoke
The Display team introduced this morning the final version of the exhibition scenario:
I – The beginning of the smoking era
II – The “perfect type of a perfect pleasure”
III – Tobacco: a product of mass consumption
IV – Female smokers: from the femme fatale to the modern woman
V – The dark side of nicotine
How exciting! We are looking forward to showing you all the smoking-related objects.
Selection of objects to display
Last Friday, our Display team went to the Fife Cultural Trust storage in Glenrothes to choose objects for the exhibition. Snuffboxes, matchboxes, lighters, cigarette cards… the collection displayed will be rich and diverse!
Items will be exhibited from March 14, 2020 at the St Andrews Museum.
