Friends of Seafield House have published a new online exhibition. “Arrol’s Seafield House revelealed” as a taster of a physical which had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 lock-down. The exhibition is in celebration of the 130th anniversary of the completion of Seafield House and the opening of the Forth Bridge, Sir William Arrol’s greatest construction.
The exhibition offers a guided tour through Seafield House using the photographs of Bedford Lemere and Co., which are held by Historic Environment Scotland. The photographs were taken by Harry Lemere on 12 May 1890, not long after the construction and interior decoration of Seafield House was completed. Researched and written by the creator of the Sir William Arrol website, the exhibition offers a fascinating insight into Sir William Arrol’s personal life and the people who lived at Seafield House.
