Whet your appetite for social history collections online!
One of the outcomes of the Stories from the Stores project is to improve the documention of the social history collection. Volunteers have been busy helping us to photograph the objects as they are cleaned and repacked in the gallery. These are all added to our database, and published once the record is ready.
15 records were added initially, but with thanks to the efforts of staff and volunteers working on the project to date, you can now view the second batch of our collection online. There are almost 400 items online to date – a couple examples are below!
The catalogue will be growing as we continue to document the collection, but it will give you an idea of what’s in the collection.
If you are in town tomorrow (Saturday 29th June, 10am-4pm) then do pop in to our Share a Story day at the museum. We would love to hear your stories about the things you see in the exhibition!
