A Family History Set in Stone, part II

Posted by Tenby Museum on Feb 24, 2016 Blog No Comments

Today Gareth signed the space of wall directly below the spot where his father had signed the exact same wall nearly forty years ago.  It was a lovely moment and needed preserving and so that is exactly what we have decided to do.  I asked Gareth to build a small frame around both signatures so it did not get plastered and covered and lost forever and so now, for as long as the gallery stands, that shared family moment, forty years and a generation apart will be preserved in the museum.  Gareth said he was 18 months old when he is father acknowledged his work on the wall and his father would have been 41 years old at the time of signing.  And now Gareth, just turned 40 years old, has signed the same wall.  History repeating itself and kept for future generations.  As I said, a lovely moment.

Gareth signs the wall just below the spot where his father, John Noot, signed his work in 1977.
