“See Holderness as it used to be,” says Katy Miller, Hedon Museum’s Press Officer about its latest exhibition. “The Museum is honoured to be displaying the work of Frederick Schultz Smith (1860 – 1925) on the 90th anniversary of the artist’s death. F. S. Smith was not born locally but, after moving to Hull, found himself enchanted by the local area.
“The talented artist spent many years travelling by bicycle and by train, on the now mostly closed local railway lines, exploring Hedon and the surrounding villages. As you admire Smith’s skill, you can imagine yourself standing alongside the now vanished Haven, which long ago made Hedon one of the busiest ports in England, and alongside buildings long since lost to the sea. Don’t miss this unique chance to see East Yorkshire through Victorian eyes, and see just how you might have lived!” says Katy.
Exhibition runs until Wednesday 9th September 2015. Opening times are every Wednesday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Admission is FREE. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available. To find us follow the signs in Hedon town centre.
