Art in the Archives: Gallery 2: Faces

This gallery contains portraits of various sorts from collections in our care. They include a striking series of sketches by Arthur Primrose Young (1885-1977), who was works manager of British Thomson-Houston, electrical equipment manufacturers of Coventry and Rugby. Most of the sketches seem to have been done at various meetings which he attended. You can find out more about Young and his archive in our catalogue.
