Chinese Wallpaper from Guangzhou (1760) found underneath a new layer in Museum Oud Amelisweerd.
The inhabitants of the old villa went with the interior trends of their time and added new wallpaper every once in a while. With restaurations, old pieces like this can appear. ✨✨
We've always known that museums aren't just for art, education and history - they're places to have fun! However this delicious museum pictures by @fetucci at the newly opened @sweet_Museum in Moscow really takes the cake! #thisismuseum
The famous taj store in Bricklane in London.The heart of Bangla town and predominantly 95 percent residents are of sylheti origin.The store was founded by a Bengali sylheti Abdul jabbar who was a seaman from Bengal undivided India but now modern day Bangladesh from sylhet moulvibazar .
He was a seamen and worked in the british navy a story similiar to my great uncle but thats for a different day and settled in spitalfield in and worked in sweatshop and then decided to open up the Taj store. He founded the Taj store in 1936 making it the most oldest international grocery store in the uk. They have successfully went on to open other franchise. The taj has everything - exotic spices from across the world and produces.
What I love about this man's story is that it takes a brave, couregous and determined person to start all over again especially in an intimidating but limitless and ever expanding city like london. we are made by stories like this. we are inspired by stories like this.Thankyou for contributing to global and diverse britain.swipe right for pics☺
