M&S Exeter 1917

Archive images show the development of the individual M&S store through time and you can download all the images in a PDF document to print out for the classroom.

Also included are highlights of archival evidence from the store's own records, giving you snapshots of the life of the store, and there are lots of ideas for discussion and activities using the material with students from KS1 to KS3 (including a Penny Bazaar mini-topic).
