In-depth research in relation to the identity and location of a Picturesque dwelling in a painting of circa 1820, circle of Francis Nicholson
What we did
- Conducted in-depth primary and secondary research via historic maps, the Census, and collections at the East Riding Archives, and Hull History Centre; as well as consultation of local history publications
