Our Archive and Artefact Collection

The vehicles are the most high profile items in the Museum's care. Additionally, however, we have been acquiring artefacts to support the vehicle collection. Many of these are not suitable for constant display but are brought out on suitable occasions.

These artefacts are many and various. We are creating archives of builders and operators, for example:

    Photographs, negatives and transparencies, cine and video
    Book library
    Manufacturers' technical catalogues and manuals
    Engineering drawings
    Publicity and point of sale material
    Ticket machines
    Timetables
    Destination blinds
    Uniforms
    Bus stops
    Other roadside 'furniture' (telephone boxes, 'Bundy' clocks etc)

The museum has a great deal of pressure on its finances with many vehicles still awaiting restoration. Therefore we are always grateful when artefacts are donated to the museum. Sometimes this happens when people are concerned about the treasures they have preserved over the years and therefore make provision in their wills. If you have similar concerns, please think about a suitable museum such as Wythall for them. If you would like some advice, please do get in touch with us. Likewise, if you feel that you could help with cataloguing or restoring our smaller exhibits, we're waiting to hear from you.
