Photographs of artwork: 'All Aboard!' by Sue Dunkerley
- Held At: Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies
- Title: Photographs of artwork: 'All Aboard!' by Sue Dunkerley
- Description: "The manifest of the New Phillis, Captain George Long journeying back to London in June 1750 and a list of the crew with a red seal against each name, were my inspiration. The Radcliffe family were involved with the Levant Company and a brother was based in Aleppo. A collage of the merchants' marks and a drawing of Aleppo in the 1750s were chosen for this piece of Kinoptic art, a technique that dates back to the Persian Empire.
"Machine stitching on the sails and crest is on silk paper and the rest is on cotton rag paper. Sequins represent money with the shells relating to the sea."
