Thursday Doors – Cavan County Museum 3

For this week’s Thursday Doors post we are still in the Cavan Coumty Museum. Climbing the stairs opposite the main entrance we come to a landing with a large window through which you can see some of the outdoor exhibits. 
The glass display cabinet holds an array of interesting items from the past.
The white clay pipe was very popular in the 1900’s even with women.
I’m sure some women enjoyed snuff, too. 
Hearing aids have definitely shrunk in size over the years.
I remember a feeder cup like this in our house when I was a child.
This tile was taken from the Titanic’s first class smoking room before her maiden voyage. There was so much to see and we hadn’t even reached the first floor. I don’t want to tire you out before we get there so  I’ll save that for next week. Thanks for coming along this week. Norm has an interesting collection of Thursday Doors over on his blog.

    The tile is beautiful but it makes me wistful, too. I’m amazed by the butter dish. It looks as big as a gravy boat.

    These are certainly interesting things, Jean. I’m trying to imaging using the ear horn. I guess if you put it down mid-conversation the person would know you were bored.

    Curious as to why they removed the tile before the voyage? Maybe it was just a tradition? Lucky to have saved it whatever the reason. Interesting museum!

    Nice shots Jean. With this post you’ve managed to get me fondly thinking of my long-gone Nan. She had accumulated quite a lovely little collection of butter dishes. Makes me wonder what happened to them after she passed; I’ll have to ask my aunts.
