Busy Day



I did spend two hours with the museum this morning.  Discovered that a school is sending the kids in to discover the town's history and am now working on a handout for them.  This is difficult as some areas we are very poor on, Tudors and Medieval for a start.  The Victorian times we do well.  
After this I spent an enjoyable time watching Wigan hammer Everton,  later enjoyed thoroughly Ross County defeating Celtic and then returned to searching for Victorian school buildings still in use as schools.  I have about eight different items to play around with, I wonder if I can do this? Don't know, but it's fun!

Perhaps the school could hire you to spread your history knowledge amongst the children, Adullamite.

Haha! like it! (the gun story)

I thought that there were loads of Victorians schools around still in use today, though not I suppose with the old inkstained iron bound desks we used to have, which really WERE Victorian. I don't think kids today really appreciate what it was like.....

Jenny, I remember those, and similar are in the museum Victorian class. No ink is found there!
