Throwback Thursday

During the 1930s, St. Luke’s was used as a holiday centre over the Summer.  The holiday centre was often staffed by the students and as well as waiting and other jobs, the students would spend up to 2 hours a day tending the gardens of the college. The flowers for the dining tables and many of the vegetables served to the holidaymakers were grown on-site.

Throwback Thursday

As the Devon County Show is on today, our Throwback Thursday is of a University of Exeter display at the Devon County Show way back in 1977.  Scanned as a mirror image by me, ooops!

We’re not entirely sure what the idea behind the display is, but it’s very colourful!
