Ever wonder where a museum gets its objects?

In the case of this reversible plough, we drag them out of hedges! Our curators in the 1960s had a tour of a farm in Cornwall and were so taken with this abandoned plough they brought it back to the museum.

A favourite in our collection is this enamel Brick Lane baths sign which came to us after being rescued from a skip!
