Dedicated to Noah. Researcher ‘extraordinaire’!

Behold the tortoise that only makes progress when it sticks its neck out

We recently received this letter :

“My name is Chloe and I am an online teacher for an alternative learning program for a special group of kids where we have been discussing about nature and wildlife and while looking for information, we came across your web page https://www.thehobb.tv/wow/links02.html and we wanted to say thank you! One of my students, Noah, did some research and sent in an article. I want to show the increasingly large group of students that they can accomplish things if they aren’t afraid to come out of their shells and simply ask, especially while being in so much isolation these days! Please let me know if you’d be willing to help so I can share the exciting news with them!”

Thank you in advance!

Thank you Chloe and thank you Noah

Keep going.  The future is reached one step at a time, with a forward thought and usually into the unknown. Nobody knows what the future holds and that makes its potential far greater than anything the past has ever created.

Be excited. Excite the World with your enthusiasm.

Decoupage at the Water Palace Exhibition

At the Water Palace Exhibition in Birmingham, UK, World of Water used decoupage displays designed and made by architect Timothy Griffiths. Each display was back-lit to in balance with the brightness of the computer screens sponsored by I.B.M.

A photo record of five, out of the six decoupage, remains on the World of Water archive. The originals were lost.

The earliest decoupage in the WoW Collections (below) dates from circa 1923 and was made by Charles Wentworth Elam (1890 – 1966) for his daughter, Joyce Latham Elam, who later became co-founder of the World of Water charity.
