Electricity: The Spark of Life Exhibition

The story of electricity is the story of life itself. Within every object on earth is hidden either a positive or negative electric charge - from the structure of the atom to the functioning of our brains, the natural power of electricity is all around and one of the most potent symbols of the modern world.

This exhibit will cover the use of electricity in the home, and demonstrate how this freed up women to enter the work place.  Former WES President Caroline Haslett was a pioneer in this area.

This exhibit takes place at the Welcome Collection
183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, UK
