We are pleased to announce a section meeting for the BAA Historical Section

Date:     Saturday May 5th 2012
Time:     10:00 - 18:00

Soho House was the home of Matthew Boulton, eighteenth-century industrialist

whose members included James Watt, Erasmus Darwin and Josiah Wedgewood.

We would like to have a theme of  "Astronomy in the Industrial Age (1700-1900)"
but we'll consider offers of talks on all subjects. Please contact the director if
you would like to be considered.

More details to follow. Hope to see you in May 2012!
