Below: One of the drawings created during a recent open day held at Wiltshire and Swindon Archives. This one of a princess is by Rosamond Bailey, age 7, and was inspired by a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I. Submitted by Claire Skinner of Wiltshire and Swindon Archives.
This October the Archives Hub is taking part in The Big Draw. We want you to make drawings inspired by archives – or by elephants! – scan them or photograph them, and then email the digital versions to us. We’ll give an Archives Hub notepad and propelling pencil to everyone who sends us a drawing, and the first name out of the pith helmet will receive some paper made from elephant pooh! If you send us your postal address, we won’t use it for anything else.
