Colouring in for the mind

Posted in This months highlight on 23 Mar 2020

We thought that we would provide some images from the collections here at the Berkshire Record Office for you to colour in whilst you are at home.

Colouring in is great for the mind and can be very calming.

At the bottom of the page are PDFs that you can download and print off. 

We hope that they will prove useful to you in these uncertain times.


This image is from an illustrated children's alphabet book from c. 1840s (ref. D/EX2547/2/5/16).


This image is from a scrapbook of cuttings from 1860 to 1900 (ref. D/EX215/Z3).
