400 Objects for the 400th Anniversary
2020 is the 400th anniversary of the foundation of Merchant Taylors’ Schools by John Harrison, Merchant Taylor of London.
To mark this event, in March 2016, the archivists at the Boys’ School and the Girls’ School started to research an object each week to display on the Schools’ website. This process is running through to early 2020 and will present 400 objects [200 from each school] which have, in some way, a connection with the history of the school.
The objects, along with brief descriptions and explanations, are going to be featured shortly on this website.
