Bringing the past to life with new Crystal Peaks exhibition

THE past will come to life as Mosborough Local History Group launches a new exhibition at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre.

The popular history society is hosting a display of archive materials, photos and rare film footage in a Central Atrium unit at the shopping mall, beginning on Monday, June 3.

Volunteers from the group will be present some days to meet visitors and give them a chance to share their memories of the Mosborough and Crystal Peaks areas in a series of special Living Memory sessions.

Those recordings will then become part of the society’s growing archive of materials preserving the area’s heritage.

Volunteers will be asking for help identifying some of the unknown faces from the past captured in some of the rare photos on display.

And organisers are also planning a series of activities aimed specially at younger visitors.

“We are very pleased to be able to welcome the Mosborough Local History Group to join us for six weeks and we are confident that their display will prove extremely popular,” said Crystal Peaks centre manager Lee Greenwood.

“This is an area of Sheffield that has changed enormously in the past 100 years and we are very proud that we are now part of that story.”
