Last of five talks in the ‘Institutions’ series

In the 19th century, churches and individuals were the main benefactors setting up local schools, until in 1871, when the local authority in Reading also became involved in the provision of education through Reading School Board. Joan will tell us about the development of education in Reading through this period of time.

Jacksons, Langstons and Tuttys are familiar shop names to people in Reading. But do you remember Hawkes Ironmongers or Cook's Dairy and Farm Equipment? This talk will look at shops from the 19th century to the present day, and how shopping has changed over the years.
