Meet Porgy, Alan Turing’s teddy bear, who helped the code breaker practise for his lectures and speeches. Porgy’s new home is a 30mm sand blasted acrylic base, forming part of the new exhibition open at Bletchley Park.
As well as ensuring Porgy’s conservation, Dauphin have been involved in displaying a collection of Turning's personal artefacts, including his watch, a pair of oars from his college rowing team, and a range of books.
The jewel in the crown of this display is of course Porgy who’s specially made and shaped acrylic nappy help him to sit up straight and welcome all who get the chance to visit.
