Day 30 - A discovery in the Strong Room

These scrawls were found in the Strong Room the other day when they removed the shelves.  You will see that they were left by the people who constructed the shelves on 23 October 1835.  On closer inspection you will see that it was signed by Mr. (Isaac) Kingham, Virger, he was Head Verger here between 1832-1847.

I'm sorry that the photo is not of the best quality but we have tried to get the best one possible.

The pity is that we don't think we can save the scrawl!
