Objects of the Month 2017

Objects of the Month 2017

We showcased some fantastic items in our Object of the Month case in 2017 including George Stephenson’s waistcoat with its intricate flower and leaf design.

Have you heard of Strohngzael? This was the professional name of a body builder called Ernest Allen and, would you believe, we have his Union Jack posing pants in our collection and they were our object of the month in July!

November came back to the First World War and a beautiful quilt made by Mrs Knowles and her daughters commemorating the death of their son and brother in the fighting.

Browse through the highlights of our Object of the Month items displayed in 2017 and remember that you can find other objects from our collection on the Museum Facebook page.
