Guess the object! What do you think we have selected for this week's Show & Tell? Keep an eye out for clues and the big reveal on Monday! #myBSM
A couple of weeks ago we set our visitors a challenge to solve one of our jigsaw puzzles in the collection. We didn't know what it looked like, and it is ultra hard due to the shapes of the pieces. And you've done it! We now know it's of a 1904 painting 'Rivals' by John HF Bacon!
Did you manage to work out last Friday's Show & Tell? It was a glass lantern slide showing an image of a full moon. This would have been used in a school much like modern overhead projectors. #myBSM
