Online Lecture - Miniature Motorists: Transport Toys in the Science & Industry Collection

About

Throughout the twentieth-century, many of the most popular toys in Britain were miniaturised versions of the latest technologies, from play kitchens to model trains.

In this lecture, Felicity McWilliams will showcase a beautiful collection of (mostly) tinplate transport toys in the museum's collection, from mail delivery vans to land speed record cars. Featuring important Birmingham manufacturers as well as those from further afield, it will explore what these toys can tell us about children's changing technological, educational and social lives.

Felicity is a historian of technology, and works across our museums and sites as the Research Assistant for Science & Industry.

This online lecture will be delivered via Zoom. Once you have signed up to the lecture, a unique invite will be sent for an online Zoom webinar, along with instructions of how to log on.
