Hello, I wonder if you could help me?

In the museum's collection there is a marble bust of William Menelaus (1818-82) by THomas Brock, Accession Number: NMW A 2526.

At the moment I'm researching and writing a short biographical summary about the engineer Edward Pritchard Martin (1844-1910) for the Engineering Timelines website (a not-for-profit charity and educational resource). It's part of a wider project on lesser-known engineers who worked in Wales, and who deserve more recognition.

Martin and Menelaus worked together, so as part of our Martin biography, would you allow us to reproduce a picture of the Menelaus bust on the Engineering Timelines website?

I look forward to hearing from you.

With kind regards, yours hopefully,
