About this blog

I am a curator and cultural historian of childhood.

This blog features interesting things, people, pictures and ideas I have come across in my work at museums of childhood in London and Edinburgh. Plus some contributions from friends and colleagues.

It’s an occasionally-updated place to find stories of objects and people in our public collections of childhood.

    I was intrigued to read a blog entry from summer 2012 about the museum’s acquisition of an archive collection of Child Education magazines. I have fond childhood memories of my mother, a primary teacher, receiving these. I particularly loved the posters and stories from the Christmas issues. A few years ago, shortly before her death, I tried to find a particular old Christmas issue as a present for her but was unsuccessful. Unfortunately I can’t remember what year it was from but it would have been sometime between the mid sixties and the mid seventies. Just out of interest I wondered if your archive contains all the Christmas issues from this period?
