1. This was for the exhibition, Loan Collection of Scientific Apparatus at the South Kensington Museum, conceived in 1875 and opened by Queen Victoria in 1876. The powerful Advisory Committee was composed of members such as Abney and they were charged with including items of historical interest as well as then-modern teaching and research tools. [See Doc. No: 00533].
