Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Legacy: One Family, a Cup of Tea and the Company that Took on the World

Published 29/08/2019

Legacy charts the rise and fall of one of the most influential dynasties in British history through the lives of five astonishing generations; both sweeping and intimate, it is a story of sacrifice and selflessness, betrayal and personal tragedy, and Empire and its cost. Included in the story is a brief account of the origins and development of LEO, the decision to found LEO computers Limited as a subsidiary company, and the later decision to dispose of the subsidiary. The book allows the reader to peek behind the scenes at the way the members of the family which ran Lyons operated .
