My weekend - a family affair - unplanned. Panic stations - eldest grandson who is 9 and autistic has to complete a Victorian project by next weekend.
Manic family search for an item from this era ended when my aged father coming up trumps - see pic - said item now hanging in B's garage (click on pic for a detailed view - a little bit like one of those pictures in a Ispy book - do you not think -how many things can you see beginning with 'B' I can count 7 - 1930's bike in the background - hopefully to be restored in readiness for the Steam Rally next year.
Victorian Memorabilia in the foreground of the pic - internet search gave us information - it is called a Steelyard measure - it previously belonged to our grandsons' great great great grandfather - taking us back to the 1800's - it was probably used to weigh potatoes - sacks of corn etc.
Health and Safety restrictions will apply I am sure when this arrives at school!!
How was your weekend?
