Lancashire County Council Archives visit

Second year students took a trip to the Lancashire County Council Archives to get an insight into their working processes, how to become a contributor and what photographic treasures are held in the large collection.

Vicci McCann -senior archivist- was kind enough to dig out a range of interesting material from the archive to display to the students. Everything from a 17th Century hand written letter discussing the gun powder plot, to some early 20th Century Daguerreotypes were available for perusal.

Building links with a local institution like this has become an excellent method of first hand learning for all involved.
