Lost, and Found

The dig has gone on, and miscomprehensions got sorted out. The hole has got deeper – around a metre or so – which is as far as it’ll go.

The finds have been really moving. Small pairs of shoes belonging to children from a hundred years ago. Old coins. A stone bottle that held mineral water and was marked with the name of Italian immigrants based on City Road and who are in the 1883 Census. Broken china and clay pipes.

Shoes, pipes and china going back over a hundred years

Every child from Virginia School came up to have a go this week, and so the women’s group from St Hilda’s enthusiastically got down to see what they could find.

We hope that the Museum will have a presence at the Picnic on July 26th so that they can show everybody what came to light from the area’s long-gone past. .
