The Star’s 125th anniversary exhibition is now open for everyone to turn back pages of Sheffield history at Weston Park Museum.

We have put together a unique display highlighting some of the biggest stories over the decades. It is open all this month and entry is free.

The exhibition includes not only tales of destruction and drama which happened right here in Sheffield, but also our coverage of major national and international events.

There is everything from the abdication to the first moon landing, and lots more in between.

You can also see for yourself lots of memorabilia from the ever popular Gloops children’s club. There is the original stamp used to bring delight on birthdays as well as a set of the all-important Gloops rules.

Our photographers have put on show for the first time one of their original glass negative cameras as well as one of the original images captured when Winston Churchill was granted Freedom of the City.

If you like a challenge we have also included more than 20 old images which we would love your help on. We want to know if any of your relatives are among the young faces preserved for posterity. Do get in touch if you recognise anyone or have more information about the photos on display.
