Barometer case and newspaper cutting

Aneroid barometer case with a cutting from The Times dated 27 January 1932.

This barometer case comes from a 15-drawer cabinet found in the Herschel family home in the 1950s. The contents of this and a similar cabinet seem to suggest that they were used by successive generations of the family to store specimens, material and apparatus for carrying out experiments.
