Faith, Hope, Charity Exhibition moved me to tears. The objects so fragile and poignant- tokens left by mothers so their children could be identified but often when they came back to claim them the children were dead.  I kept remembering what Iain had said about the heavy Christian overlay of the place and certainly the ‘worthy’ portrait room had that feeling but the objects in the exhibition were profoundly moving in their scale, the significance imbued into everyday objects and the endless inventories of these recorded into books reveal the numbers of children left there.

– “The closer our relationships are with objects the closer our relationships are with people” (Miller, D 2009:1)
