This exhibition mark the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens's death, celebrate his life, and work as one of the world’s most-loved writers on childhood.
The exhibition explores Victorian London from the 1830s until the turn of the twentieth century, focusing on Dickens’s child characters and exploring the role of Dickens writing in helping to create a better childhood for us all.
On display are some first edition copies of Dickens’s most-loved novels, examples of his journalism, and some intricate drawings and sketches of Dickens and the characters he created. There are also books and documents relating to wider social reform in Victorian-era London, all of which are from Senate House Library's vast collections. These are complemented by some of Dickens’s personal items, such as one of his walking sticks used on his ‘night walks’ in London, on loan from The Charles Dickens Museum in London.
