Inspired by the Subway project

Listening post

For Open House weekend 2013 we set up a listening post so that visitors could tell us what they thought.

 

There was overwhelming enthusiasm for the subway and a huge range of views and ideas expressed.

 

Among the many visitors was Isabel White with copy of a work in progress her epic poem Paxton's Folly. The work is inspired by the Crystal Palace and is the result of extensive archive research into the characters that brought it to life.

 

We also have 2 clips of what Open House visitors had to say about their memories and ideas for the subway.
