November's Object of the Month (OOTM) was chosen by another of our work experience students; Adam. He chose further items from the Private Alfred Franklin collection - many of these objects were also displayed in our Oxfordshire Remembers Part II exhibition, which has now finished.
Adam chose a letter detailing Franklin's struggle with Spanish Flu, with two photographs and his forage cap displayed alongside. I think that whilst displaying one object gives gravitas to it; having several objects to support the main object goes a lot further to contextualise what you are seeing and gives a different kind of weight to that object.
There are still several more objects in the Franklin collection that haven't been displayed, so look out for these in the future!
