Interactive project website – with real data!

Mark (Sparky) has now begun to populate the interactive project website with real data, and we can begin to see what the website might look like (still work in progress) but it does give you a sense of how the data will be visualised….Image

The small coloured circles are all numbers of dealerships in particular towns and cities..we will have literally tens of thousands of data sets we reckon, by the end of the project in a couple of years!….

New volunteer researcher

We have a new volunteer research helping on the Antique Dealer Project – Alix Brodie-Wray, has been doing fabulous work on gathering data on dealer names and addresses ready to upload into the interactive website….here’s Alix!Image


Alix is a part-time PhD student at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College, and an experienced Higher Education Administrator.  Her PhD research examines the production of ‘Vintage’ as part of larger markets in second-hand clothing, motivations of second-hand and vVintage shoppers, and the cultural implications of Vintage in an age of austerity (so she is already keyed into aspects of the current Antique Trade project!)….Alix has considerable experience of working with data and spreadsheets, and has all the right skills we need from project volunteers…Thanks again Alix…fabulous work!
