Yarburgh's travels in the Americas exhibition is now on show at Sewerby Hall until March 2017.

The 1860s was an extremely turbulent decade with numerous cultural, social and political events happening virtually all over the world. Yarburgh George Lloyd Greame left Sewerby in 1864 bound for America which was fighting a furious civil war. So began an extended odyssey across America, South America and Canada. His frequent letters to his parents provide the means to track his travels and comment on the turbulence in America, Europe and at home. This exhibition will examine the events of the 1860s and trace Yarburgh's travels in the Americas.
