Welcome to another Blog Post from me.
This instalment is all about an astonishing find I had recently, with my findings continuing to develop quite rapidly the more I dig into its story. I felt it necessary, after my recent video about the piece, to update you all on what is fast becoming a 'Museum Piece'.
So, without further ado, let's get down to business.
Ahoy there! Welcome to another instalment of 'Blog Post Monday'.
Now, didn't I find some fascinating pieces on my travels this week! One of them, being a piece of local history, is going to be the subject of today's post. A rare survivor of a fire in 1840 that left the magnificent Minster in our beautiful city of York, shaken.
So, as always, get that kettle on and make yourselves comfortable, as we travel back to 1840 and to York, to find out about the devastating fire that ripped through its heart...
Ahoy there! Welcome to this week's instalment of 'Blog Post Monday'. I hope this finds you well.
A few weeks back I found an intriguing little treasure. It was one of those where, the more you researched, the more fascinating it became. It's so fascinating in fact, I just have to tell you the story that I've uncovered around it.
So, as always, get that kettle on and sit quietly, as we take a look at the possible ill effects of meddling during the 19th century...
Ahoy there! Welcome back to 'Blog Post Monday'!
This week's post is about a fascinating piece of social history, if more than a bit macabre! A tragic tale of robbery, murder, blame and consequently, the last person to be publicly executed in Bedfordshire!
Have I got your attention...?
Well then, get that kettle on and have a clean pair of pants to hand, as we take a look at the tragic story of William Worsley, the last person to be publicly hanged in Bedfordshire...
Ahoy there folks! Welcome to this week's instalment of 'Blog Post Monday'.
This week I'm dedicating my post to one of my favourite recent finds. As you may well know by now, I have a particular fascination with folk art and creations made throughout history by untrained artists. Created only from materials available to them, each piece offers an insight into the feelings and emotions of the creator at the time, and tells a very personal story. But it's not just about the exceptional artistic talent behind these pieces, it's about the significant social and historical importance of them too.
So, as always, get that kettle on and bring with it your very best bedside manner, as we take a look at the fascinating world of military 'Convalescent Art'...
