Whitehaven Archives 'From the Minute to the Gigantic'
Description
The 350th anniversary of the birth of Jonathan Swift gave Whitehaven Archives the idea to mark ‘Explore Your Archives’ week with a display of some of their smallest archives to some of their larger ones. The acclaimed author of Gulliver’s Travels reputedly stayed at Whitehaven when he was a small child, at the Red Flag Inn overlooking the Georgian town so legend says.
Was this his inspiration for the town of Lilliput in his classic novel? Whitehaven folk like to think so.
