Six small pieces of paper were left on the #911Memorial on Antonio Melendez’ name. One Spanish word is written on each piece of paper. When put together, the message reads: "Hay Gente Aun Que Te Aman" which translates as: "There are people who still love you." (Swipe for more)

Great old Opel from the times when they built huge cars.
This Opel Admiral A (1964-68) is on display at @musee_garage_pere. They keep the cars as they are, often used for movies or TV shows.

‘True to Life: British Realist Painting in the 1920s and 1930s’ at the @NatGalleriesSco has been described by @TheTimes as, “the exhibition of the season… Immaculate, highly detailed and luminously beautiful.”
This exhibition invites us to look at art that has long been scorned or ignored. When #abstract art became fashionable after WWII, these artists became side-lined and largely forgotten. ‘True to Life’ includes some 80 paintings, of astonishing technical accomplishment and stunning beauty, by more than 50 artists. It is a unique chance to rediscover a remarkable, but little-known period in British Art.
‘Spray’ (1939) by Harold Williamson, part of the @RussellCotes collection, is a particular highlight of the exhibition.
If you are lucky enough to be in #Edinburgh this week, be sure not to miss the end of the #EdFringe Edinburgh Festival – “the largest platform for freedom of expression on the planet”!

#museummonday can stay out of 🇫🇷 France 🇫🇷 for only so long and then we're back!
You're looking at some mid-90's goodness from @maviccycling in the form of Mektronic shifters. They were the wireless answer to their earlier Zap group which used wires, but had issues with moisture. They had a brief venture in the Tour de France, where Chris Boardman won the opening time-trial of the '97 Tour.

When searching for information on ceramics like a tea set, always remember to start with the maker's mark. This is the mark found on the underside of the object, and will normally help you narrow down a time period. While simple, just begin with a general Google search. There are many digitized directories that will help you narrow down the set. And remember: little differences DO make a difference. Many makers alter their names or marks over the years, and even the subtle differences will help you narrow down to a period of years. If you are having problems identifying the pattern, I suggest trying a reproduction or replacement company like http://ow.ly/HeIg30ex0RD because they present the patterns visually, and it is easier to scroll through. Do you have questions? Let us know! #museummonday

"The Child's Bath"
Mary Cassatt, 1893
I saw this last year and thought of @meggieshaw, who was pregnant. Within days, she'd had her sweet baby. I have another pregnant friend who's very close to giving birth, so I'm hoping this sends some good vibes her way.

Exciting news! Today I started my new job at the Nichols House Museum in Beacon Hill! I'm sharing a cushion made by the last Nichols to live in the house, Rose Standish Nichols. The Tudor rose design is appropriate not only because of her name, but also because she was a landscape gardener with a fondness for antique textiles and furnishings. I will share more objects and stories from the house periodically, but you can also follow us at @nhmboston for even more information! #historichouse #textiles #tudorrose #nicholshousemuseum #rosestandishnichols #needlework #19thcentury #floral #museummonday
