Usually dispatched within 3 to 4 days

Blythe House in London, originally built in 1903 for the Post Office Savings Bank, has for over 40 years been the store for three national museums, the V&A, the British Museum and the Science Museum, holding millions of historical objects. The collections are now moving out to a purpose-built site, and Blythe House’s closure has been marked by specially commissioned images of its architecture, collections and occupants, along with oral history interviews and written testimonies. Memory Bank takes you behind the scenes to reveal one building’s hidden history and its unique place in British cultural and social life.

      Thanks for the Memory

      I'm not sure what to make of this book. I rather think it's personal to the people who worked in Blythe House because they are seen in various angles adorning the shelving, perhaps in wonderment and reflection of their time in the building. It's an arty, photography book which perhaps could have explored more of the vast site. It's a large weighty book for what it is, and I'll place it under my coffee table for more reflection later. I'm thankful to the author for bringing some of the long corridors of post office history past, into the light.
