David Bell left a comment on my post about Kate Humble and Who Do You Think You Are? David is a Trustee of the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers and he wrote about an exhibition currently at the Institute’s library.
You may remember that Kate Humble visited the library in the programme to learn more about her 3x great grandfather Joseph Humble and learnt about the tragic accident at the colliery where he was a manager. At the exhibition visitors can view the documents that Kate saw, and other images relating to the tragic accident.
If you are in Newcastle it has got to be worth a visit, the library itself looks to be a magnificent space, and the collections held there look equally impressive, according to their website they even have engineering plans for the Eiffel Tower! See the Institute’s contact us page for further details and opening times.
If you do get chance to go please feel free to tell us what the exhibition and library is like.
