2014 was a great year for the project and some of our frequent visitors will have noticed or read about key progressions within Grace’s Guide as they happened last year.
Here’s a reminder of some of our key events from 2014:
January – This time last year, (and after nearly seven years of hard work), we reached charity status - for the advancement of the education of the public in the subject of the industrial and engineering history of the UK.
April – Then we hit over 100,000 pages in April, achieving a great milestone for the project and the content being made available to freely read and use everyday.
June – By early summer we had completed photographing the journals of The Engineer to provide perhaps the only complete digital version of The Engineer from 1856– 1960 available today.
October – We re-launched this blog last autumn to reach out to our readers and connect you to some of our greatest pages.
2015 is set to be another good year, so please get involved if you want to be a part of our volunteer team, contact us if you can add to any of our history pages, or simply keep supporting and returning to the site to find more exciting pieces of history and hidden gems about our industrial past.
