The brand new Edinburgh Vintage Trail booklet was launched this afternoon at Central Library. Visit the accompanying exhibition at the library and you could win a luxurious afternoon tea for you and three friends!
The exhibition features many objects that will bring back memories for all you children of the 1970s, 1960s or earlier. And younger visitors will get the chance to see those things you’ve heard your granny talk about: radios, vinyl, clothes, household goods and an array of exciting collectibles.
Of course there is a huge range of books to look at and borrow covering iconic fashion, hits of the times and novels of the day.
To celebrate the launch of the 2016 edition of the Vintage Trail the luxurious 5-star G&V Royal Mile Hotel has donated a fantastic prize for our exhibition competition: afternoon tea for 4 people including a glass of champagne in the hotel’s iconic surroundings.
All you have to do is answer a simple question and then pop your entry in the box at Central Library Reception. The competition closes on March 30th, 2016 and the winner will be notified by 8th April, 2016.
In the meantime remember to pick up your copy of the Edinburgh Vintage Trail booklet at your local library and explore vintage Edinburgh with its array of shops, markets, music venues and eating places.
Get inspired by the not so distant past!
