Four paintings from the NMM have been shortlisted in a competion to create a mural that will enhance the back of the shops on Frankham Street in Deptford.
The paintings all display activities that were once so prominent in the area, from ship building and launches to the daily work of international companies such as the East India Company. Celebrating Deptford's maritime past was a theme that the local community were keen to promote when consulted about the Deptford regeneration programme and here at the Museum we are very happy to become a part of it.
It is great to know that a piece from the Museum's collection will be enjoyed by so many people on a day to day basis.
Happy voting everyone! We look forward to the results.
