Out of the Attic

Welcome to our ‘Out of the Attic’ collection.

This is where you’ll find all sorts of ‘stuff’ that people have shown us.  They are the things that, when you look at them, make you remember a memory.  We’d love you to browse through this collection and see what memories they trigger from your own life.

Over the years we’ve seen a huge range of things; documents, pieces of film, medals, apprenticeship certificates, pieces of linen.  Through the wonder of digital technology we can scan many of these things and add the digital copy to our collection for other people to see.  Sometimes there’s a complete life story in a few pieces of ephemera and it’s wonderful to make the emerging story public.

Perhaps you have something in your attic that could be dusted off, just go to our contact page to find out how we can help you to do it.
