Topographical prints – seeking a volunteer from the Friends

We need some help with a collection of around 40 framed topographical prints which have been donated to the Centre for Regional and Local History. The prints need to be taken out of their frames and returned to the Centre so they can be added to the Views of England collection.

The frames may then be recycled or disposed of. We will be very grateful if any Friend would be able to take on this task. The framed prints may be collected by prior arrangement from the Attenborough building.

Please email Karen Donegani kd257@leicester.ac.uk if you have any questions or are able to help.
