PHOTOGRAPHS and vintage clothing have gone on display to represent the Queen’s 60th year on the throne.

The 1950s exhibition at Baldock’s Mill in South Street, Bourne, opened on Saturday and will run until June 10.

Brenda and Jim Jones, of Bourne Civic Society, organised the exhibition, which includes photographs, reprints of adverts from the time and vintage clothing.

They decided to hold the exhibition following the success of a wedding exhibition last year to mark the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Mrs Jones, of Stephenson Way, Bourne, said the opening weekend went well. She is looking forward to welcoming lots of visitors while it is open.

She said: “We are really pleased with how the exhibition looks.

“The weekend went well and we had complaints last year that the wedding exhibition wasn’t open for long enough so this is open every day.”

During the exhibition, donations will be taken so the civic society can make another replica Charles Worth dress.

The exhibition is open every day between 2pm and 4pm.
