On Wednesday three members of our Curatorial team will be taking over our Twitter account as part of Ask A Curator Day.
Our curators manage our existing collections and actively acquire new objects to add more detail to the story of the British postal service. The objects within our collection include letter boxes, stamps, postal vehicles, paintings, hand stamps, archive documents and much more.
The three curators tweeting will be:
11am-1pm – Sarah Jenkins, who works with our collections including the recently digitised lantern slides.
1-3pm – Chris Taft, our Senior Curator. He has recently been working on our Mail Rail project to preserve rolling stock from this fascinating underground railway.
If you have any questions for our curators tweet them on @postalheritage this Wednesday. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #AskACurator.
