How has writing changed? And how has this affected communication?

This small display shows some of the writing equipment Elmbridge Museum holds, used for both education and leisure. As a broad overview of how people have jotted down their thoughts and work, it exhibits school pencils, personal typewriters and even experimental computer devices.

From the letter-writing boom of the Victorian era to technologically ambitious attempts to use computers to speed up our writing in the 1980s, in ‘Write On!’ we draw a line from handwriting to computers and back again.

The display can be viewed during Xcel Leisure Centre’s opening hours. Click here to see these on the Places Leisure website.
