Places we Work

People have always worked hard to provide for their families be it gathering crops, hewing coal or making textiles. Places we work range from factories to offices, coalmines to farmsteads, kippering houses to textile mills, formal gardens to banks and shops.  In the lifetime of RCAHMS, many of the industries which dominated the country have disappeared but survive in our records and in the memories of the former workers who are proud of their achievements. Through these records and memories we create a window on past workplaces, not just for us, but for future generations to understand their heritage.
