Leicester - My Home & Moving Here
Newarke Houses Museum & Gardens
Discover Leicester’s urban and industrial heritage, it’s long existence as a market town, the impact of the arrival of industry and how people have often moved here for work.
The new 'Leicester - My Home & Moving Here galleries feature a host of interesting products from when ‘Leicester Clothed the World’ including well-known hosiery and shoe brands from yesteryear.
The new galleries provide an insight into the people of Leicester and where they worked through a series of evocative photographs and original advertising. The galleries are a must for those who have worked in Leicester’s hosiery and boot and shoe trades and to students of fashion, design and architecture.
