And so we have an Advertising paper from 1888. I found this four page medium
deliberately put behind the timber cladding in the roof void / loft in the house in Derby, England. (U.K.). The actual property I found this medium in- is the address and place of work of the gentleman who was a carpenter and lived in that house. He has an advert inside the inner page. Due to modern building regulations the work in the roof space was not up to today’s specifications so had to be removed. On removing the cladding this medium had been put there, when he was fixing the timber cladding. To be found years later, i believe. The medium is very fragile; I had a frame made to protect it. What will happen to this when I’m no longer here, I’m not sure?
And i found this appropriately 20 years ago – 1995.
