Cambridge Folk Museum

Friday afternoon was spent at the Cambridge Folk Museum, photographing some of their collection with three other members of Cambridge Camera Club.  We were brought a succession of varied and fascinating artefacts, each of which presented their own particular challenge.  Some were also incredibly fragile (such as the toy train and the porcelain head) so needed very careful handling.

When the ivory back-scratcher was brought out, I was instantly transported back to my grandfather's house aged about 6, as he had one which was identical that always fascinated me.
