    So there you have it folks:
    The museum is a treasure and this is a small part of it.
    A lovely Australian girl asked for a photo with me so I extracted payment in the form of one with her!

    Thanks to Bluescelt's research we went to O'Connor's just down the road from the museum. They have fantastic Scotch Eggs!
    Great time. Thanks for organizing this Bluescelt.

    I am very pleased with the performance of the iphone camera. Many of these items were behind glass.

    Thanks for all the photos! I'll echo the sentiments of others, too bad it has to close but at least you know where the items are headed. The dog is classic and I imagine you are not the only young lad who remembered that for many years.
