3D model of Elizabeth's visit to Tilbury
3D model of Elizabeth's visit to Tilbury
From Grays Museum

On Monday night I went to Grays in Essex for a screening of our film Bata-ville (made very near to Grays) whilst waiting for the film to finish (I've seen it too many times to sit through it again!) I looked round the museum that's also in the Thameside Theatre complex. As well as a Land Army uniform and some nice leaflets about killing rats "they are doing Hitler's work" they have this wonderful 3D model (from the 30's I heard) depicting Elizabeth's 1588 visit to Tilbury. This photo shows just a small section of the model, all carefully crafted from paper, card and string ... the docks at Tilbury look pretty different these days.
