Journal Pioneer - - COMMUNITY -

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.
