Gordon Selfridge exhibition at Highcliffe Castle

As we approach the First World War anniversary Highcliffe Castle is staging an  exhibition reminding us that Gordon Selfridge escaped the fear of Zeppelins by moving his family to the Castle.

Soon his wife Rosalie established an emergency convalescent camp for US soldiers on Highcliffe Recreation Ground.

The Evening Echo has a report on the exhibition mounted by historian Ian Stevenson.

Selfridge, Shopping King of Highcliffe Castle is open daily until Sunday 7 September; admission £3.35.
