Exhibition “An Old Apartment”

November 20, 2013 – January 20, 2014
Local History Museum of Krapivna

Opening of the exhibition is on November 20 at 15:00

Dear friends, welcome to our new exhibition in Krapivna, “An Old Apartment.” It shows the interior of a living room of the 1950s of the 20th century. On display are original objects of everyday life, furniture, clothes, and dishes. Meetings with people who remember that time may be held in the exhibition space. 

It is easy for us to imagine what apartments of the 50s were like, based on Soviet films or on the recollections of our grandmothers and grandfathers. Moreover, those interiors have been present in their old homes up to now, as old furniture was usually made to serve several generations. About that time, some apartments’ interiors already had TV sets, beginning with large boxes with small screens in front of which big lenses were put, and later TV-sets with bigger screens that did not need lenses any longer. It was common then to have a large lampshade over the dining-table, and beautiful chandeliers spoke of the high social position of their owners. A telephone in the apartment was a real luxury.
