This new museum tells the history of the borough and its residents, through artefacts including books stolen from Islington libraries by Joe Orton and his lover Kenneth Halliwell, a bust of Lenin which had to be removed from Finsbury Town Hall because it was repeatedly defaced, plus letters and recordings from immigrants and residents caught in the world wars.
