Event Description

 

The 50 photographs in this exhibition are drawn from across NLI’s collections, and range from formal studio portraits featuring children of the landed classes taken in the 1880s to more candid shots of city kids taken in the 1960s.

The NLI team look forward to welcoming hordes of small people, big people, families, school tour groups and other visitors to Small Lives in the months ahead. As well as displays of really fabulous photographs, the exhibition features a range of educational materials.
