Wednesday 8 March A Visit to the Women’s Library at the LSE with a talk given by Gillian Murphy Senior Curator
“As a member of the Bridge Club, I have to say that my recent visit to the LSE Women’s Library was an incredibly enriching experience. I went in with a general curiosity about women’s history, but I left with a much deeper appreciation for the significant contributions that women have made throughout history.”

The London Bridge Museum Project is looking for new people Background For 2,000 years London Bridge has been fundamental to the development of London. Thecapital’s location was defined because the Roman invading force in 43 AD chose to cross the Thames at this point.The London Bridge Museum & Educational Trust came into being to meet the clear need torecord the history of the various bridges that have succeeded one another at this crossing point, and to tell how London Bridge made London a World City.Initially, we hoped to establish a physical museum but this proved not to be possible, and inlight of the volume of global interest online a virtual online museum has been established.The futureWe believe that now we should➢ develop and enhance the virtual museum, to meet both educational needs and thepassing interest of students and tourists, and➢ explore better links with Lake Havasu City – the American home of John Rennie’s LondonBridge.The needWe want to strengthen our team with some new and younger people who can bring thecreativity and energy needed➢ to develop the Trustees’ thinking into an action plan,➢ to talk to people who might help us, and➢ to consider ways to finance these activities.Trustees are unpaid and act on a purely voluntary basis.If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact Andrew Dyke, ideally byemail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
