Cartes de Visite

In the Victorian Room there is new exhibition of cartes de visite photographs kindly lent by Roger Packham and arranged by Ingrid King. These small albumen prints mounted on cards, largely depicting couples or individuals posed in a studio, were exceptionally popular during the early 19th century as they allowed relatives and friends, for the first time, to exchange portraits by post.

Fossils

In Room 1 there is an exhibition of fossils from the Cretaceous period, together with an explanatory wallchart, all beautifully put together by assistant curator Ray Butler.
