We're working on a new exhibit! This is a big job, but also a very fun job - choosing the artifacts that will go into the exhibit, and often discovering something new about the collection in the process; finding photographs and documents, and collecting stories, to bring the objects to life and make them personal; figuring out how everything is going to be set up in the display gallery; and finally, actually setting it up.
Office Evolutions is basically an excuse to get some of our typewriters, Gestetners, adding machines, and other office equipment out of storage for a while, but it also gives us a chance to showcase just how much office technology has changed in the past hundred years or so.
The exhibit will open on April 27, 2011. In the meantime, watch this space for updates on how it's progressing! If you have any comments, or would like to share some of your office-work stories, please drop us a line!
