This is the third version of the Virtual Museum. Earlier versions were hosted by Microsoft but the service (which was originally free) is no longer available and the data has been transferred (with much help from Kasia) to Squarespace. There is now a 'blog' facility (here) but for the moment it is not 'live' as I do not have time to moderate the content of postings by others. So, for the moment the pages will be used to notify updated content and for general information.
The Museum began as a photographic record of one collection. The first photos were taken by Michael Jeffery of Woolley and Wallis in Salisbury (who continues to support the Museum by allowing access to a comprehensive archive of past auction lots).
Other collectors have donated images or allowed their collections to be photographed. The present collection represents a 10 year accumulation of images.
