Peterborough Museum Mk I

852

This old photograph was restored from a very faded print that showed little of interest but it now shows, behind the local milk delivery cart (marked “Maxwell”), a sign in the background marked “Peterborough Museum”.

This must have been the museum that existed prior to the move to the Priestgate site used today which dates this image as pre-1930 and possibly places it in Park Road where the museum was based between 1923 and 1929.

UPDATE: Many thanks to Peter Hannan who correctly identified the location as being in the Cathedral Precincts opposite the cathedral front and has submitted today’s version of the scene below !
