More from the Museum.

Here's a few shots of some of the "non schoolroom" exhibits I took on John (Zuiko) and my visit to the Braintree District Museum.

John said he tried to photograph the old camera exhibit and failed. I think I did too. Photographing objects in glass cases with weird lighting is not easy but for the record here's my effort.



This is one for Snaarman. Some type of bobbin winder, with lots of lovely brass from the textile mills.



Here's an interesting Carving.


And here's the explanation of what it is.

I went to school with a lad whose parents kept the Six Bells which has now been turned into a house.

This is an old silk weaving loom from one of Courtauld's first mills in the town.


Finally, a display of Corn Dolleys from the craft gallery. The lighting of this exhibit was a strange yellow colour and took a bit of work to make it look "normal".


Thanks for looking.

Re: More from the Museum.

Well done, Peter, the light in some of the darkest recessess of the museum was so low it was a challenge to get anything at all and other times there were reflections from the glass cabinets to contend with. A great place to visit, though and a valuable resource for Braintree.

Re: More from the Museum.

I think you conquered the glass cabinets very well. A very interesting wood sculpture.

Thanks OM.

I remember the carving when it had its "fine pair of plaster breasts".

Regards.

I knew you would be able to tell us what it is!

I have an old footpump like that in my loft somewhere.

IIRC it is a Thornton Pickard, and it still works. (Well, it did last time I tried to use it - about 15 years ago - using one of the remaining unexposed glass plates which are still with it.)

Re: More from the Museum.

What an unusual set, not a million miles from home I think you did a grand job capturing the photos here.

That's what I was relying on.

Due to my increasingly frequent "senior moments" I'd completely forgotten what these were.

Having been reminded what the footpumps are I dug out my Father's old pre-war Agfa model but I now can't find the little tube needed to connect it. To be honest I can't remember where the bike is either.

Regards.

Many thanks Tom.
If I hadn't had an E-M5 I don't think I would have got anything even worth processing.

Regards.
