Morphy Richards Hairdryer Ensemble, one of the objects of display at the exhibition.

Morphy Richards Hairdryer Ensemble

This is a picture of a Morphy Richards ensemble hairdryer, which was extremely popular in the 1960s and even into the 1970s. Usually produced in either pink or blue, there were a number of variations. The most notable feature of the design was the hood.

I tracked down the hairdryer in the picture via ebay, and it’s still working! There’s actually still plenty of them out there; one woman kindly rang into the Dave Fanning show when I was on to offer a loan of hers!

Advertisements for Morphy Richards hairdryers and the model in the picture above will be on display at the exhibition.
