A short time ago in a strongroom not so far away...
THE SOLON ROOM
Moving tasks have engulfed the City Archives team. The organisation of items, collections, and strongrooms is in progress...
Store Tours: Episode IV - The Solon Room
Our latest Store Tours episode is also the last in the series, as we head back down to the basement level to explore the Solon Room store. Named after Minton artist Marc Louis Solon and his personal reference library - the first collection to be permanently housed in this space - it's a small but important piece of the City Archives' storeroom puzzle here in the City Central Library & Archives building. It was designed as purpose-built library and archive storage and, as you'll see in the video, this makes it a perfect fit for the octavo, quarto, and oversize items of the Solon (and Minton company) libraries. We hope you've enjoyed watching this Store Tours series as much as we have making it for you - there'll no doubt be more vlogs in the future but right now we're going to swap camera for keyboard and get stuck back in to some old school blogging 🤓
