Vaughan Postcard volunteers: Christmas closing dates
Vaughan Postcard volunteers, please note that we will not be running our usual Tuesday sessions at the Bristol Record Office on the following dates:
23 December 2014
30 December 2014
20 January 2015 (BRO closed for annual stock-taking)
27 January 2015 (BRO closed for annual stock-taking)
You can check the BRO’s 2014 opening times here: http://www.bristolmuseums.org.uk/bristol-record-office/opening-times/
The BRO also have a new online catalogue, found at the same place as before: http://archives.bristol.gov.uk/
At the time of writing, it was still suffering some teething problems and was taking a long time to load. The new format is though very much easier to navigate and to explore, not the Vaughan Collection, but the whole of the BRO catalogue.
The Christmas postcard here was added to the Vaughan Postcard layer on Know Your Place in October this year, and shows a card printed during the First World War.
