A Tumblr full of Gems: look what we found!

Delighted to reveal A Cabinet of Gems!  It’s our new Tumblr account.  We are using it for appealing or interesting out-of-copyright images from Special Collections at Bradford, like this lovely 1920s girl on a photo wallet from the Jacquetta Hawkes Archive.

An alternative title might be Look what we found! The format is perfect for quickly sharing new images that we find as collections are catalogued or studied by users.  We’re aiming to post something new most days.  There are always new things to discover.
