Who Is This?

Wednesday 7 October 2015

We have a few photos in our archive which are labelled as ‘unknown’, and we’d like to know more about them  Here’s one – does anyone have any information at all about this group of happy looking ladies with their cup?!

Cataloguing The Collection

Monday 25 May 2015

We have finally started the Documentation project. This task is carried out on Friday of each week and involves a team of up to 6 volunteers. We are operating the new MODES Database, which involves marking the objects with the new museum numbers and carrying out the documentation to museum standards, and photographing the objects. We are thinking that this could take 2 years to complete because of the large number of items in our collection generously donated over the years by the residents of Elstree and Borehamwwood.

Hard at work! Ruth, Matt, Helen, John and Peter
