Have you seen this month’s edition of Hertfordshire Life? It includes a piece about the version of our exhibition currently on display at the @universityofhertfordshire de Havilland campus. Many thanks to @esbarchives for providing the image of the devil finding heat in an electric fire!

A quick glance at part of our exhibition now open at @irishworldheritage centre in Manchester. The exhibition runs across two floors and tells the story of electricity in the Irish home. It includes a new section about Manchester-based electrical manufacturer Pifco, which was founded in 1900. The exhibition is organised by Owen Davies, Ceri Houlbrook and Ciara Meehan of @uhertshistory, and features material from IET Archives and ESB’s Archives.

We’re really pleased that we could include this Irish language advertisement from ESB in the re-designed exhibition we’re taking to @irishworldheritage in Manchester from 8 March. Unfortunately, there wasn’t space for it in the original exhibition.
