Back in Time for Father’s Day

Back in Time for Father’s Day

Wondering what to buy for Father’s Day? Socks and a bottle of Old Peculiar perhaps. Why not treat him with a trip to the Museum of Bath at Work.

Purchase your tickets in an Edwardian ironmonger’s shop.

Tour the reconstruction of the nineteenth century engineering and mineral water business of Jonathan Burdett Bowler.

Watch the belt driven machines power up.

Cogitate how you got on a penny-farthing; wonder how you got off.

Imagine yourselves in scarves and goggles in our beautiful 1914 Horstmann car, and discover why you did not need a starting handle.

Recollect Bath businesses that are no more and those that still are.

Have time to chat as you enjoy a cup of coffee or ginger beer on the mezzanine.

and much more…

Moreover, if you still need a present, why not buy a copy of Knowing Your Place: Bath in Twelve Pictorial Alphabets.
