Collections - P-Q

Sport and Education

Horace Panting's archive includes an excellent collection of school sports memorabilia on cricket, football, boxing, athletics and swimming. Items include annual programmes of events, handbooks, scorecards, souvenir booklets and annuals. Covering the period 1914-1993 the collection is an important record of the history of children's sport in London during much of the twentieth century. Have a look at the catalogue for the collection on our online cataogue.
