Local history at lunchtime.

Jonathan Bowler–Victorian Apprentice, Businessman and Survivor

Wednesday April 7th, 12.30 p.m. on Zoom

The “Local History at Lunchtime” Lectures
Brought to you by Museum of Bath @ Work Director Stuart Burroughs

The founder of J B Bowler and Sons was forced in 1856 to take responsibility for his entire family, his education and a fledgling business after a series of disasters.

This lecture explores how from the brink of destitution Jonathan Bowler forged his own way on Bath’s commercial scene.

The Museum of Bath at Work is running a series of lectures via Zoom in April, May and June and hope, by offering these events online to ensure members of the Friends are able to view the lectures and shows without having to visit the Museum and – if you are remote from Bath – you will still be able to join us. Each lecture lasts one hour.

Each lecture or show costs £6.00 to view.

Email Stuart Burroughs at the museum – mobaw@hotmail.com – for details of how to pay and connect to the Zoom link once you have done so.

Or send a cheque to Museum of Bath at Work, Julian Road BATH made out to Bath Industrial Heritage Trust
