Best place to help you create a world set 100 years ago: A Museum.

Or in this case more specifically: The Lochaber Rural Complex.

Before coming to the highlands, I talked to museums in and around Fort William on the phone, trying to get a collaboration started which would benefit film and museum. After trial and error, some museums showed interest but were too worried about lending us their collection. Finally, I got in contact with Isobel Camplell from the The Rural Educational System, a place were children are thought how people lived in the highlands in the beginning of the last century. After meeting her and explaining our project, she trusted me with her collection and was delighted to answer all the questions no one else could give me the answers to before.
