Our ‘Life in a Box’ suitcases bring real historical people to life and contain items from a person’s past which you can look at, read and interact with!
Take a look inside Joe Sweeney’s tin lunch box and see what it was like to be a docker who took part in the great London Dock Strike in 1889 or peer into Winnie Furiman’s satchel that she used when she became a bus conductress in 1916 during World War I.
These are just some of the boxes you can take a glimpse at so make sure you lift up the lids to learn more about these people’s lives!
