Grosvenor Museum Archive, Chester

I was lucky enough to be allowed into another Museum Archive this week.

I just love being in Museum Archives, you never know what you might find, and you often find things you weren't  even looking for or considering. The Box above is one made by one of the curators who worked in the museum archive in the 1930s. Robert and Alfred Newstead  (brothers) apparently made special boxes, like these for some exhibits.

The one above is trying to piece together small fragments of a mirror.

The other thing I found (see below), which isn't an exhibit, but the remnants of an early museum display . The objects had been sewn onto the material, and now all is left is the black cotton.
