Georgina Grant

Curator, ironbridge gorge museum trust


Research Interests

Based at Blists Hill Victorian Town, Georgina has the responsibility of maintaining, developing and delivering the interpretation of the 52-acre site. All printed material (posters, bags, notices) used in the Victorian Town is produced in the Printers exhibit. As a living museum, the posters and notices put up around the Town are vital in disseminating historical news, events and advertising in place of traditional museum panels. There is a working Columbian, Wharfedale and Cropper press in the Printers exhibit. As well as producing the printed material, demonstrators show visitors how the presses work and describe the life of a printer in 1900.
