Twitter is great for Reminiscence Projects, all those wonderful photographs available for you to share at no extra cost. Remember to connect your laptop to a larger screen so that everyone can see the photographs at the same time. You can also use these resources for one-to-one sessions where appropriate too.
Here are some super posts that we discovered this morning which create the back drop for a reminiscence session with your group:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-41594835 - More posters from London Underground's forgotten designers
A look at some of artists who have produced posters for the underground, it includes several examples and may spark conversations about children’s books, travelling on the Underground and the artists themselves.
Thank you to Mar Dixon 🍰 @MarDixon for sharing this.

A short film showing a variety of acts in Zippos Circus, can be enjoyed as an introduction to some circus fun, such as juggling, plate spinning, etc. A great starter to share memories of the circus coming to or through their hometown or village. Did they go to watch the circus in the Bit Top? Or did they just go to the field/park to watch them setting up? What animals did they get to see? Did they like the clowns? Anybody take up gymnastics because they wanted to be a trapeze artiste?
