Our Collections

We have a collection of posters from the early 20c. These are printers proofs and include the date of printing and the number of copies made.

The printer was a Mr Venning, and the collection is naturally called "Venning's Posters" .

This fascinating glimpse into the everyday social life of the town has been scanned to computer and is available to browse.

 

1914 Red Cross Appeal

This poster was produced in September 1914. It shows the need for hospital equipment. Beds do not look to be too comfortable or hygienic. Note the hole in the centre of the poster. This was caused by the spike on which all these printers proofs were impaled.
