Re-fashioning the London Museum: the making of Mary Quant’s London, 1973

Dear Jihane 

What an excellent presentation! I learned a lot about the history of MoL that I didn’t know even though it has a collection that I’ve used a lot.
I was struck by the revivalism and nostalgia of the final room. I wondered if you might find it useful to position it in relation to the 1970s retro styles that are pithily encapsulated in Peter York’s BBC4 playful programme, The 1970s Edwardian Revival (check Box of Broadcasts). See also Raphael Samuel’s retrochic chapter in Theatres of Memory. 
Well done on a great presentation, again,

Bella

Dear Bella, 

Thanks so much for your kind comments (and apologies for the delayed response!). 

You're right - it really does seem to shift position after the window-type displays. I've been trying to find something that places the Edwardian revival in context so I can't thank you enough for your suggestions! Also love digging around BoB...

Best wishes, 

Jihane
