Travel book specialists revealing forgotten artefacts

The correspondence of Florence Nightingale and the explorer Captain Scott are just some of the artefacts in an exhibition by Stanfords.

The company famously helped great Brits plan some of their most famous adventures throughout 19th and 20th century.

Several antique items were found in the basement when the travel book specialist moved to its new site near Mercer Walk in January.

The exhibition plays host to an array of maps and globes given to those who needed help on their journey as well as an invoice sent to Winston Churchill. 

The Stanfords exhibition of antiques runs until January the 3rd next year on the corner of Langley and Shelton Street.
