Where: London Metropolitan Archives, 40 Northampton Road, London EC1R 0HB

The Knowledge Quarter is delighted to invite staff and friends from Knowledge Quarter organisations to the next in our series of private tours and views. It will be on this occasion hosted at the London Metropolitan Archives. You are invited to an exclusive morning curator tour of the Archive’s new exhibit The Londoners: Portraits of a Working City.

Join London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) for a private view of their current exhibition ‘The Londoners: Portraits of a Working City’ and come face to face with the people of London’s past. The collections at LMA contain an extraordinary range of photographs, prints and drawings of everyday people who have lived and worked in the capital for the last 500 years. Portraits of Dickens and Brunel appear alongside many who are simply unknown, from a fifteenth century Alderman to a twentieth century trapeze artist.

Please note that registration for this private tour opens on Friday 7th April.
