Magnificent Rackhams cabaret, exhibitions and more in photographs

You just do not get magnificent exhibitions in the shops anymore, outside the most upscale shops in London. The best we’ve ever had came possibly at Rackhams in the 60s and 70s.

Ex-Rackhams employees recently held a reunion where they collected photos and shared memories of their time in one of Birmingham’s best high-end department stores.

Huge sums of money were spent on window and shop exhibitions, events and more to create scenes that resemble high art than high street!

See some of the designs that Rackham’s display team has proudly made over the years below.
