Threads of Feeling is a really remarkable site. 18th Century textile tokens left with abandoned babies at the London Foundling Hospital is a flash slideshow, so if you’re on an iThing, I believe you won’t be able to view the slideshow. But I highly recommend it. The bits of fabric that were left with the babies are poignant as are the glimpses of writing. The photographs are vivid and lovely.

More about The Foundling Museum which, as I discovered, houses a collection of the composer Handle’s original manuscripts.

Here’s another site I adore: Trovais If I just need to look at something pretty, I go here.
