Midhurst Museum shows it pays to advertise

THE latest display in the Midhurst Museum features advertisements over the years for local businesses.

Charley’s Aunt, Home Sweet Home and Cinderella could be seen at the Public Hall, which later became the town’s cinema before it was pulled down and is now home to Tesco.

Cinema tickets were available from Mr Bowyer’s chemist shop on the opposite side of the road, now Boots.

On Saturday March 18, 1905, George W Taylor had their annual clearance sale of soiled and surplus stock. Two busses parked on the bottom of North street advertised Tamplins Ales and Littlewoods. Artifacts will include tokens from shops, paid to workers instead of money that could only where they worked and various guide books and magazines revealing firms that have long since disappeared including Rudwicks which is now the home of the museum.
