Martin Waters at The Ropewalk

This is Martin Waters Passage of Time display which is currently at 
The Ropewalk in Barton on Humber. 
Martin had another poppy instalation in the Hull Trinity Church last November for Remembrance Day, so I guess he reused some of them for this lovely clock. It was very touching to look at.

Also part of the exhib was this charming selection of trolleys with old suitcases on them, each containing an assortment of nostalgia and memories.

and forming part of a collage of wartime notes and poems sent to a loved one...this which is so touching... hope you can read it.

and then this ............also touching........

For more info pop to Jeans blog next 
the clock symbolism is explained better there!
And the significance of the old postcards there too.

After the trip to Barton, we had lunch in the strange but wonderful East Riding Rooms in The Weir, Hessle........... you just have to love their counter!!


  1. don't you just love those old photos...and that counter is just gorgeous.

  2. I love exhibits that make me imagine and ponder and wonder...

  3. I must make an effort to see this exhibition - could well be a day out when we recover from the plague!

  4. beautiful old memories and treasures

  5. I really must try to make this exhibition, it appeals to me on many levels. Also it's years since I was up that way. Robin Hoods Bay used to be our weekend bolthole when the kids were teenagers. Ahh.... the memories of driving over the Humber bridge early on Saturday morning looking forward to a weekend of peace - happy days.
