Moffat at The Tate
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) selections from Scotch Lakes Sketchbook, 1801.
In June–August 1801, a young Turner completed a tour of Scotland via the Lake District and Chester, producing many sketches in a double folio sketchbook. These links are to those relating to Moffat. The drawings are across two pages, left and right, and are best viewed on a computer rather than your phone or tablet.
Electric Scotland https://electricscotland.com/index.html started scanning in books before there was an Internet archive or Google even existed so they’ve been doing it for a long time and they try to ensure this is a good resource for folk interested in things Scottish.
Includes Some old pictures of Moffat from Sean at the Moffat Toffee Shop.
Words of WW1
As part of last year’s memories of WW1, Moffat Museum showed 10 short films released in August 2018 during the Centenary of the First World War. Each has been built to bridge a gap that spans 100 years. Cross them with us to explore the lives of soldiers with dreams, hopes and fears as intricate as our own. Explore them again on their YouTube Channel.
