An archive of business and travel history with national and international significance is to be preserved and secured for the future in the county, after the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland was selected as the new permanent home of the Thomas Cook archive collection.
Business Archives Council have been working closely with the liquidator and the repository to achieve this result and save the collection for the public.
The Thomas Cook Archive comprises extensive written records relating to the company’s history from the firm’s foundation in 1841. They include unique letters, brochures, posters, passenger lists and guide books produced by the firm. There are also artefacts collected by the company.
