Photograph from Octavia Hill restoration features in Tel Aviv exhibition
A PHOTOGRAPH of Wisbech’s history – uncovered during the restoration of Octavia Hill’s �Birthplace House – has been selected for an exhibition in Israel.
During the Heritage Lottery-funded restoration of Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House, there were a number of discoveries and the chance to capture various images.
Among the discoveries was some wallpaper of birds – and a �photograph of the wallpaper taken by Karen Harvey has been selected to be shown at the Dizengoff centre in Tel Aviv.
The exhibition, called �‘Confessions’, curated by artist Gali Timen, has been a great opportunity for Wisbech history to be shown around the world.
Peter Clayton, from Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House, said: “This is one of the most exiting finds during the Heritage Lottery funded �restoration of the Grade II-listed birthplace house.”
