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.
