Talk: Objects from 22 Ainsworth St – the working class world of the Crouch family

Tuesday, 12 October, 2021 , 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

A group of several score objects from a working class home in are being donated to the Museum of Cambridge. They were owned by Charles (1867-1912) and Clara Crouch (nee Peacock) (1872-1949) of and some of their 9 children. This survival is rare because it is so well documented and supplemented by family photographs.

This illustrated talk will explore the working, political and cultural life of the Crouch family as it coped with the impact of economic hardship and war in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is given by Professor Nick Mansfield (UCLAN) and Robin Mansfield, Charles and Clara’s grandsons.
