Bradford altar frontlet in textiles exhibition, Two Temple Place
The 2020 exhibition "Unbound - visionary women collecting textiles" shows works collected by seven women who recognised the artistic, social and cultural importance of textiles. This cross-stitch embroidered frontlet is now in Bradford Cathedral, for the Bolling chantry chapel. It was embroidered by the Bradford Khaki Handicrafts Club established in 1917 as occupational therapy for traumatised soldiers. The frontlet was originally used in the chapel of the Abram Peel Hospital. The collector Louisa Pesel was an active member of the club and designed the frontlet; colours and design are based on Greek embroidery. She had worked at the Royal Hellenic School of Needlework and Lace in Athens.
Two Temple Place

In 1895 when he moved to England William Waldorf Astor bought the mansion at Two Temple Place and had it rebuilt as an opulent Victorian mansion to be his London residence and office. The architect was John Loughborough Pearson. The interior has opulent wood panelling and carving, there are stained glass windows. The house is now owned by the charitable Bulldog Trust, used for exhibitions, private events, and occasional openings for public or Friends of Two Temple Place.
