The Orrery by Joseph Wright

The Orrery by Joseph Wright (1734-1797). This artwork was painted in 1766. Its full title is 'A Philospher giving a Lecture on the Orrery in which a Lamp is put in place of the Sun' and is the first of the series of 'candlelight' compositions that established Wright's name. It depicts a public demonstration of an orrery (bottom centre), a piece of equipment that shows the movement of planets around the Sun (represented by a lamp) during the course of the year. 'The Orrery' was influenced by meetings between Wright and his friends, when they demonstrated experiments and discussed the latest scientific developments.

Victoria Park Hotel, junction of Clarkehouse Road and Southbourne Road, 1862. Later occupied as a private residence by Samuel Osborn and renamed Rutledge House

The Victoria Park Hotel and Bowling Green', opposite the Botanical Gardens, seems to have gone out of memory. It was opened about 1858 or 1859, and the only landlord the place had was Mr. John Law, landscape gardener, formerly the curator of the Botanical Gardens, and who published a few local items dealing with botany and the gardens. This would be a nice retreat from the town, with possible visits to the gardens, and Sterndale Bennett had the companionship of his wife and a son on this visit to Sheffield. A letter written at the time mentions a 'long visit from the Misses Sterndale.' Nothing is heard of the hotel after about 1862, and the premises became a private residence. The house is at the corner of Clarkehouse Road and Southbourne Road.
