Box Loans

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.
