an image from the collection

Museum of London

The Museum's moving image items are integrated into other collection groups. For example, the Museum holds moving image related to its working history collections which record workplaces and work practices that have since disappeared e.g. Whitefriars glass, Marshall & Snelgrove department store, Richard Oliver, London’s last traditional watchmaker and Greorge Payne& co., London’s last tea blender & packer. The Museum also holds ‘video-histories’, life story interviews with individual Londoners. This part of the collection has a strong bias towards capturing London’s cultural diversity. Moving image material is also held in our art collections for example a piece by artist Susan Hillier; and our archaeology collections, for example video records of archaeological excavations in London since the 1980s. There is a small group of documentary films from the 1960s by Peter Davis.
