Victorian street tour at Salford Museum and Art Gallery
Event code: X377
Fri 26 July, 14:00–15:00Salford Museum and Art Gallery

As part of the Congress, Salford Museum and Art Gallery is offering a guided tour of Lark Hill Place, the Museum’s famous re-creation of a Victorian street. Visitors will find out about the Victorian ‘Chemist and Druggist’ John Hamer and some of the remedies and contraptions on sale in his shop. For residents who preferred more ‘traditional’ medicine, there was always ‘Mrs Driver, bleeder with leeches’, whose work is described along with some of the home remedies that housewives might have cooked up.

There is no charge for this tour. Numbers will be limited to 35 people, so please register in advance. You can do this at any time before the Congress by emailing tours@ichstm2013.com with your details; or you can sign up in person at the Congress Events Desk. Please arrange your own transport to Salford.
