Press Cutting: Description of refurbishments made to the Horniman Museum

One short article describing the number of visitors at the museum “a large company”. The unnamed author also goes into detail about the physical changes that have been made to the museum “some new rooms”. The article is complimentary about Mr Horniman’s collection, noting the artefacts as “beautiful things, and also calling the collection “unique”.
