As part of our Crawley’s Collections Revealed project (funded by Arts Council England), we’re meant to be running face to face sessions with people, looking at objects and writing labels.
Obviously we can’t do the face to face bit right now, but we can still show you objects and ask you to tell us what you’d put on a label.
It can be something factual, something the object makes you think of or remember, or even a drawing or poem. It’s up to you.
This week’s object is a milk bottle. Apparently R.G. Law was known as ‘The Midnight Milkman’ because of his erratic delivery times!
Let us know in the comments what you’d put on a label for this object?
(The writing on the bottle reads: “This bottle and milk is the property of R.G. Law, 16 Brighton Road, Crawley. Stolen if delivered by another dairyman.”)
