A fascinating gift from a long-standing Alumnus has arrived in the 125 Office. Apparently in the very earliest years at Ormskirk, the (all-female) students were all given a silk square to wear when they commenced their studies:
It has lasted remarkably well for 70+ years. Perhaps the narrow gold stripes were a bit brighter when it was woven but the heliotrope and green are still very fresh.
The precious original has been stashed in the 125 Archive and no others are know to exist. But the 125 Team are wondering if there would be a market for these if new ones were made? Or if they would make a good gift for visitors?
