Next up it’s our Registered finds: objects assigned an individual number (akin to an museum accession number) because they are of particular interest.  Tweet @MuseumofLondon or @AdamCorsini using #dayofarch or #ArchiveLottery or message us below, picking a number between 1 and 546 to discover, completely at random, what that shelf holds… – and we’ll post back our results around 1pm
