As you may have already seen, we have a new feature to our collections website! Our featured highlights display ten objects on display in the main galleries with the hope of introducing new visitors to what we have on show, but also by giving more regular visitors extra information on our top objects. After some deliberation between the collections staff, our objects are as follows:
– Peterloo handkerchief
– Shoemakers banner
– Secret Society Skeleton painting
– Pank-a-Squith board game
– Bricklayers emblem
– 1906 Labour Party minutes
– Equal Pay Plate
– Michael Foot’s Donkey Jacket
– Viv Anderson’s football shirt
To see images of these objects and to find out more information, visit our site and click on the images in the slideshow!
In the future, we hope to add more featured items; hidden gems from our stores, family friendly objects and interactive, best items from the 1980s… the list goes on so check back for updates!
