Update: More about the "Threads of Feeling" Exhibition

Sunday, October 24, 2010
Recently we reported on a wonderful exhibition, Threads of Feeling, currently on display at the London Foundling Museum. Since most of us state-side won't be able to travel to London to see the exhibition in person, we're offering this link to the blog Austenonly, whose author has written a splendid review, plus posted numerous photos from the show. Now we really, really wish we could attend!

I think the little things like the half coin (given in the hope that one day, the mother might match it with her own and reclaim her child?) were the things that got to me the most.
