Saville Row archives

Monday, 17 January 2011

The BBC had a programme on its Inside Out London show tonight about the archives of Saville Row.  You can see a clip here and I'm hopeful that the full programme will appear on iplayer soon.

**Update** its available here until the 25 January so get watching.

Just watched it and the programme looks at the archives of Henry Poole & Co. Ltd and Gieves and Hawkes and stresses the value that the different archive collections hold if correctly interpreted for modern tailors who can benefit from past knowledge allowing them to continue to provide those unique skills.  It is a great example of business archives being great business assets.
