Letters that were stitched into embroidery by a woman who lived in a Norfolk asylum more than a century ago have gone on show.
Lorina Bulwer's words tell of her anger and anguish at being in the Great Yarmouth lunatic ward. They are on display at the town's Time and Tide Museum.
Built in the 1830's, the workhouse in Great Yarmouth would have housed up to 300 inmates at any one time. Lorina worked with her mother at a nearby boarding house before being confined to the lunatic ward of the workhouse. No one yet knows why she ended up there.
Her letters have been uncovered in various parts of the country as have two ledgers from the Yarmouth workhouse.
