Pictures From 1970s Exhibit At Peterborough Museum & Archives

Even though I just missed being born in the Seventies—I was born in 1980—I was delighted to check out the Bellbottom Days exhibit on at the Peterborough Museum & Archives (see the pics in this post from the exhibit). Did you know Peterborough Square opened its doors on May 1st, 1975? Did you know Pop Rocks were tested right here in Peterborough? Were you one of the teens "Scooping the Loop" around George and Water Streets, or could you be found at the Windsor Hotel, better known today as the Pig's Ear?

If you would like to learn more or take a '70s trip down memory lane, the Bellbottom Days display is a must-see. It is on until May 15th.

The museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on weekend and holidays. The exhibit is free of charge, but donations are appreciated.
