Did you know #YorkHall, based in #BethnalGreen, was saved from closure in 2004 - saving nearly 80 years of London's sporting history and the international #boxing venue? Built in 1929 and a boxing venue from the 1950's, this venue is at the heart of London's sporting legacy. 🥊o
Did you know Britain hosted the 1908 #Olympics? These exhibit pieces show the brochure & underground map for the Franco-British Exhibition in #ShepherdsBush. Although many of the stations still exist today, it's a very different view of the underground map that we know today.
With the #Euros2021 just around the corner, we look back at football in London. Here we have a #HenryGrant photograph from Alperton School, Wembley in 1980 showing teenage boys during a five-a-side coaching session - showing #football to be at the heart of London.
This 19th century #archery belt was originally owned by Fanny de Neufville Giveen. At the time, archery was a very popular form of exercise and was seen as graceful as well as able to teach dexterity. You can find this item as part of our Pleasure Gardens gallery.
Move aside Oxford and Cambridge! Here we have a coloured lithograph of 'The Final Heat of Champion Prize at the Thames Grand Regatta, Putney, 1848'. Boat races were a very popular pastime for both spectators & competitors during the 19th century - as it remains to this day.
This stunning painting is of the White City Stadium, built as part of the Franco-British exhibition. It boosted an open-air swimming pool and a pitch for football, hockey, rugby and lacrosse. The 1908 #Olympic games were hosted here with 3000 competitors from 21 national teams.
Here we have Museum of London's answer to #CaptainAmerica's shield. Buckler shields were once used for buckler contents in the 16th century. Although popular at the time, buckler contests could get out of hand with unruly crowds. Find out more here:

We're thrilled to have acquired @zsllondonzoo's NHS Giraffe House sign for #CollectingCOVID. Installed in April 2020 as a 'thank you' to all @NHSuk staff on the front lines of the pandemic, it quickly became a point of camaraderie for many Londoners over the past year. 📸 : ZSLq
