Photo Gallery: A History of the North in 100 Objects, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums
A History of the North in 100 Objects is a website-based project intended to showcase the pioneering spirit and impact of the North of England’s inventors, artists, scientists and designers as part of Great Exhibition of the North. The project will run until September 9, 2018 and is funded by the National Lottery and developed by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM).
Nominated by staff from museums and galleries across Northern England, A History of the North in 100 Objects brings together objects that illustrate the richness that comes from this region and its people, such as the creation of railways, a flourishing artistic life, the drive for social reform, and the sheer breadth and depth of world renowned inventions. These 100 objects tell just some of the inspiring stories that reveal the North’s ability to reinvent itself, to survive, thrive and create new futures for itself and others.
