Merry Christmas from the Riverside team

Today’s Picture of the Week is a snapshot of our very own, and especially unique, Christmas tree!

As temperatures plummeted across the country in recent weeks, one of our mount-makers here at the Museum of Transport took some festive inspiration from the frost.

Using scrap metal left over from building mounts for the new displays in the Riverside Museum, Simon created an arching sculpture and placed it under a burst pipe in the yard.

With such low temperatures, the water escaping from the pipe quickly turned to ice, and each day we’ve been treated to a new formation of the sculpture.

Thank you everybody for checking in on the blog this year. We wish all our followers a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2011; it’s sure to be a momentous year!
