Museum Pieces

Now and again Birmingham Museums have an open day at their collections warehouses out in Duddeston (between Aston and Nechells in North Birmingham).
A real treasure trove of everything from washing machines to boneshaker bicycles, Ancient Egyptian figurines to Mexican statuettes and ceramics from various Chinese dynasties, as well as models of industrial age machinery, valve radios and '78 gramophone players with ear-trumpet style speaker.
All that and a trip to and from the warehouses on a restored old bus of the model I probably used when I was at school!
Oh dear.
Great fun :-)
