Spot the difference

Whilst Vinai is away enjoying the sun on holiday i’m taking over as guest blogger. I’m Vanessa, the Art Curator and have decided to play a game with you all.

During the holidays we have lots of free children’s activities at the museum. One of the ones is spot the difference and we have decided to have an online version. Below are two pictures, one from 1935 and one from 2010. Can you spot the one difference?

Newspaper clipping from 1935

At least we have colour photography now

Answer:  Obviously, in one picture is the donor, Rev. J. Clough, and the other is me. The pots, rare ceramics from Liverpool, are the same though. At the time of their donation, these 18th Century pots were considered the only known examples along with specimens held at the V&A Museum in London.
