From Coffee to Seaweed: Lecture with the curators

This summer the Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre launched a brand new exhibition at 71 Fenchurch Street – From Coffee to Seaweed : Engineering a safer world since 1760

The exhibition explores the history of Lloyd’s Register told through unique objects and stories. These objects include an original plan for the Thistlegorm, a map of the world highlighting James Cook's explorations in the 1770s and recordings of our General Committee meeting minutes. 

To celebrate this launch, Education and Outreach Coordinator Charlotte Ward and Archivist Max Wilson delivered a lecture on the objects and stories, providing a more in depth look at Lloyd’s Register’s unique history and the work of the Foundation. The evening concluded with a curator led tour of the exhibition for attendees.
