Thanks for the link Rod. That kept me entertained for over an hour and still more to go.

Fascinating stuff Rod, the camping section is interesting too although I must resist reading anymore tonight!

Thanks for posting. It’s going to take me a while but I’m really enjoying that!

What a wonderful snapshot of life in the early 1900's.
I thought the wasp tongs could be useful even today but maybe a larger size for hornets where I live:

Thanks for posting this… it’s hours of fun, looking at what the well-heeled could buy 111 years ago. I too wish I had a Time Machine; I’d buy every long gun in Harrod’s inventory at that time. I don’t think any of them would be worth less than £5,000 today, with some of the best Safari rifles and shotguns now in the £50,000 - £100,000 range.
