A sketch brought to us at The Chelsea Physic Garden, 18th July 2007. This sketch has an architectural quality suggesting that its artist had some knowledge of building techniques and was using the rough diagrams to either explain something to someone or to problem solve for his/herself.
Brought to us on 18th July 2007. This small scrap of paper found on the Chelsea Embankment bears fragments of the words 'please' and 'relationship', leading us to hypothesise that this is one of many fragments that the letter was torn up in to in a fit of passion or rage.
Brought to Chelsea Physic Garden by Bella, who had found the pen on her way to the Garden. She told us a fabulous story of how her Granny only wrote in green pen. Apparently the story goes that her Granny had found a fountain pen when she was a child and being a good child had decided to take it to the police station. In those days if the lost property wasn't retrieved by its rightful owner within 3 months then the person that handed it in could claim it as their own. 3 months passed and no one retrieved the fountain pen, on receiving the pen Bella's Granny discovered that it was filled with green ink and from that day onwards she has writtern in green ink!
