The Armitt

Herbert Bell Original Photographs printed in 1880
I'm neglecting my blog recently but hopefully things be a little quieter in a few weeks...
In the morning I'm off to the Lake District with other students to The Armitt at Ambleside to do some research. It's is the home to 100s of photographic glass slides from the Abraham Brothers, 450 original natural history watercolours by Beatrix Potter, work by Kurt Schwitters plus numerous books, art and objects related to famous people and the history of Ambleside.
What a lovely place to go and do some research, much better than being sat in uni ;D
