Kenwood: My visit to the Secret Life of the Home Exhibition, Science Museum

At last, 12 years after it opened (that's disgraceful!), I finally make it to the Kenwood display in the Secret Life of the Home Exhibition at the Science Museum which was wonderful!

I consider this Ken's 'spiritual' home, because he officially opened it in 1997 (the same year he passed away) and the display shows his photo, so he's pretty much preserved for posterity now! Because of this, I decided to lodge some of his business archives at The Science Museum such as some of Kenwood's financial documents (typed spreadsheets - glorious!) and photos of the company's 21st celebrations in 1968.
