Frederick Brown Collection

Donated to the Strand Archive by the relatives of Fred Brown, former Strand Service Manager, following his death on 14th June 2014. His daughter said he always worried about his box of Strand bits finding a good home. We hope you enjoy this small part of his amazing collection - much more will be added in the coming weeks.
