After the Flood: Calderdale Museums

I’ve recently moved into a new job at Hebden Bridge Town Hall, and so I thought I’d make a little post on the last exhibition (for now!) that I curated for Calderdale Museums.

The exhibition featured a series of photographs by Mike Bentley who has documented the demolition and rebuilding of Elland Bridge following the devastation of the Boxing Day floods, 2015. It is on until 11th November, so there’s still plenty of time to catch it!

A really positive credit for my research – Leeds nostalgia: The story of the Leeds Tiger

It’s strange how past projects occasionally resurface… Just after Christmas an article relating to Leeds Museums & Galleries popped up in the Yorkshire Evening Post about the Leeds Tiger – a piece of very old taxidermy that frankly, I know waaay too much about. A copy of my Master’s dissertation resides in the archive at Leeds associated with the Tiger, and I’m glad that it is being used by those interested in the object’s colourful history. It was nice to be given such a positive credit in the article too!
