Britain Calling February 2006 - e-Travel Blackboard (press release)

A new museum in London’s Notting Hill is dedicated to the things that usually get thrown away. Packaging for food, drink and household products; promotional material, posters and other ephemera, dating back to Victorian times, form the bulk of the unique Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. The museum has been a labour of love for consumer historian Robert Opie, who started his collection at the age of 16 with a packet of chocolate Munchies. The purpose-built attraction documents Britain’s consumer society over the last 200 years, with 12,000 objects crammed chronologically into an Aladdin’s cave-cum-time tunnel, with everything carefully preserved. Victorian leisure pursuits, the 1930s Art Deco style, the craze for radio and then the new-fangled television, the 1951 Festival of Britain, the first package holidays by air, the Swinging 1960s, Freddie Laker’s Skytrain from the 70s and so on, right up to modern aerosols, toiletries and cosmetics. Brands such as Pear’s soap, Persil, Cadbury’s and Oxo are much in evidence, along with the toys, comics, games and mementoes that thrilled generations of children. There is also a small café and shop. The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, Colville Mews, Lonsdale Road, London W11 2AR is open from - more available
