New exhibition: 50 Treasures, part 3

A new exhibition has been installed in the vitrine wall in our reception area – if you are in the area or planning a visit, why not stop by and have a look? The items being displayed are all from our 50 Treasures series.  (There’s still time to nominate your favourite document from our archives or local studies collection – you could mention it in the comments box below if you like.)

The exhibition includes a number of Treasures which have already been featured in our blog:

You can also expect to see:

  •  Some of Frank H Brindley’s wonderful peak district photographs from the 1930s to the 1950s
  • A book called “Annals of Crime in the Midland Circuit”, describing hideous crimes and hideous punishments
  • The wartime diaries of Maria Gyte, 1911-1921
  • Autobiography and poems by Leonard Wheatcroft of Ashover (1627-1707)
  • A selection of records from the National Union of Mineworkers, Derbyshire Area, 1880s-2015
  • The Edmund Potter “shirt” and fabric pattern books mentioned in posts by Elissa and Clare in 2015

Each of these will be the subject of a future post – but if you would like to see the originals on display, you have until the end of April.
