Where possible, sources are noted within the data supporting images in the ‘Virtual Exhibition.’

This Exhibition has been made possible with granted funds from Seth Sprague Educational & Charitable Foundation in support of the Foundation’s Collections and Archives, by Tile Heritage Industry Sponsors and by Tile Heritage Members and Friends.

A warm thanks to all!

The production process was most interesting and engaging and sometimes challenging as I explored the breadth and limitations of the software for the final presentation. Technical assistance from THF volunteer, Alistair Hamilton, was invaluable. The link (below) to the Virtual Exhibition is a combination of AUTOMATIC and MANUAL advance images - with background music (currently only on Safari) . . . Firefox & Outlook - works only in manual advance with two clicks per page change. Alternately the video version has sound on all systems.

Your commentary is welcome and will assist in the development of future presentations - foundation@tileheritage.org
Sheila Menzies, Curator.

In addition there is a PDF down-load of a six(6) page narrative that is included in the visual presentation. It is called “A Little History of Batchelder Tiles” by Ernest A. Batchelder, circa 1920s.
