The Pen Museum, Unit 3 The Argent Centre, 60 Frederick Street, Birmingham, West Midlands, B1 3HS
Located in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter The Pen Museum is dedicated to preserving and promoting the legacy of the steel pen trade that was unique to the city of Birmingham. Few people are aware of the enormous contribution made by this trade to world literacy. The need to replace the quill pen with a more convenient writing implement lead Birmingham engineers to pioneer the development of mechanically produced steel pens which were more durable and long lasting. School Room, Writing with Quill Pen, Telephone Exchange, Family Activity Packs.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
