The literary life of EDWARD JAMES, author,reviewer, occasional poet and former pension adviser to the government of Kyrgyzstan

War Museum

I’m just back from Manchester – more exciting than it sounds, at least to Southerners – and I thought I would give a boost to the Imperial War Museum North.  It is obviously much smaller than its London parent and has a lot less hardware but it has a very interesting set of modern display techniques.  The shape is inspired by a bomb damaged building – yes, we build bomb damage now that the old stuff has been cleared away long ago.

There is much else besides in the area for art lovers and BBC fans.IMG_0464

Next week the new Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth.
