<< The exhibition is on display again this time at St Bride Institute, Bride Lane, just off Fleet Street. It is an historic location for all of us from the Fleet Street era of national newspapers and the print and media industry.  And not just for proximity to Fleet Street: countless chapel (workplace union branch) meetings were held there – starting disputes and ending them, setting up campaigns and declaring solidarity with other workers in struggle.
In addition to the exhibition, the print workshop  and the library which are entirely devoted to the history of printing and allied crafts are also well worth seeing.
The leaflet is at this link gives details of opening times.  Please note that the exhibition is open at weekends. Individual and group visits during mid- week (Tuesday-Thursday) but please check for availability. >>
