Blythe House in London, originally built in 1903 for the Post Office Savings Bank, has for more than 40 years been the store for three national museums, the Science Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum, holding millions of historical objects.
The collections have now been moved to purpose-built sites, and Blythe House’s closure has been marked by specially commissioned photographs of its architecture, collections and occupants, along with personal testimonies. Memory Bank takes you behind the scenes to reveal one building’s hidden history and its unique place in British cultural and social life.
