The lives of individuals, including stories of bigamy and impersonation, are traced through archival records; rare books, maps and photographs describe places at home and abroad; and evidence of early local advertising is illustrated in ephemeral papers. The themes of work, culture and the natural world provide perspectives on the historic papers; while the challenges of modern technology are revealed in the contrasting images of obsolete computer formats and powerful new routes for digital access.
