The History of Education Centre has a box of Victorian themed objects available which we are happy to loan out for a small fee.
The box contains:
- A slate, some slate pencils and a slate eraser
- A tawse (belt)
- A split-nib pen and an ink-well
- A pinafore, a shirt and a waistcoat (such as would have been worn by Victorian schoolchildren)
- Two books about Victorian education and schools
- Some photographs
- A set of finger-stocks
- Children's toys: a cup and ball set, and a yo-yo
- A leaflet which explains what the items are in more detail.
If you would like to borrow the box, please
contact our administrator, Julie Donald. It's available for up to three weeks at a time and costs £20, £10 of which is refundable on its return.
The box is 18 inches long, 13 inches wide and 8 inches deep.
