Telegram Collectors Day

Telegram Collectors Day

A recent project with the Science Museum has involved us going out and about in the local community to collect copies of people’s telegrams.

John Wallis is our volunteer Telegram collector and liaise for the project, and last Thursday we were out collecting telegrams at Falmouth Library.

Here is a photo of John and myself (Collections Management Assistant) at Falmouth Art Gallery posing by the very appropriately titled The Message 1890 by  Henry Scott Tuke which is currently on show until 16th November 2013.
