Join us for a study day on the history of shopping in Leeds.

This is an opportunity to explore the history of retail in Leeds – from the glamorous to the grimy. The morning will feature an illustrated talk on the changing face of retail in the city over the last 150 years.

The afternoon will explore the museum ephemera collections, giving you the chance to peruse a range of material including a Victorian sanitary ware brochure, a 1920’s bulb catalogue, and shopping ephemera from the 1970’s and ‘80s.

With Nicola Pullan, Assistant Curator of Leeds and Social History, Leeds Museums & Galleries.
