Whilst the Museum is closed and our collections unable to be seen by visitors, we have created a weekly virtual museum with an Object of the Week feature from our collections.
Object of the Week : J is for Jubilee Kitchen Towel!
Well if the Garden City Museum in Letchworth can win Hertfordshire Museums Object of the Year Award for an 83 year old toilet roll and have the story taken up by the BBC and the Sun Newspaper, then Elstree and Borehamwood Museum can celebrate its Golden Jubilee Kitchen Roll from 2002. A little secret – this is one of the collection team volunteers’ favourite object!
The Kitchen Roll is part of a small collection of souvenir items produced in celebration of the 50th year of the Queen’s reign.
