Highland Folk Museum - 18

Here we see the magnificent 1930s living room in the downstairs of Aultlarie Farmhouse.

The leather suite was first bought in Glasgow during the 1920s for use in Fort William, and the fireplace came from Wick.

There is a wireless - but no television! Some middle class families bought their first television in 1953 in order to watch the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. TV reception in the Highlands was very poor! So, let's sit down on the leather suite and listen to the wireless.
