Introductory foyer cases installed
By Tabitha Cadbury, Curator – Social History & World Cultures
We have filled two display cases in the Museum foyer with intriguing and mysterious objects that we have found in the store.
One case introduces the Stories from the Stores project by displaying a cross-section of the objects that we have in the social history collections, from a 1970s ‘Girl’s World’ toy head, to the microphone used by King George VI to talk to the people of Plymouth – and, of course, the knitted breakfast!
The other case contains mystery objects that we have found undocumented in the stores. We really don’t know what they are – and we hope that some of you may be familiar with them and will be able to identify them for us.
We would love to hear any memories, stories and knowledge you have relating to these objects. Come on in to the Museum, share your stories and find out how you can get involved with the project.
