Time Out says

This fascinating exhibition tells the story of how the humble postcode changed the way mail is processed, sorted and delivered in the UK. Along the way, it delves into our social history since postcodes were first trialled in Norwich in 1959 – after all, the postcode we live in can affect the services we have access to, as well as how we perceive ourselves and others. As part of the historical background to the postcode system, it also features stunning unseen maps of London from the 19th century.
