Did you know that groups and organisations in Sheffield can borrow boxes from the Montgomery Theatre’s Reminiscence Collection to use in their groups to help prompt memories? Each box is filled with items from days gone by and has a different theme eg women’s beauty, men’s grooming, childhood pastimes, courting & marriage and films.
