Culture Summerside offers mystery challenge
Culture Summerside museum staff is seeking feedback from the public in helping solve the mystery around a number of artifacts in the collections. The two main questions staff wish answered about the artifacts are, what are they and what their uses are.
This is what Culture Summerside museum staff know about the items in the pictures:
A – This ceramic flask has an odd shape. It is quite large and curves significantly.
B – These heavy metal tools were found with wrenches and large screws.
C – This metal object looks as if it was attached to something with adhesive at one point.
D – While we know this is a lantern, the precise use of it is currently unknown. The bottom pole has wear which suggests it was often removed from a fitting.
E – This light metal object’s head is the size of a penny. The head has “S Co” embossed onto it. Anyone having information on these items, is asked to contact Jean at the MacNaught History Centre & Archives, 902-432-1332 or Jessica through the Culture Summerside Facebook page.
