Artefact surge

Artefact surge

As Covid restrictions have eased, a steady stream of artefacts ranging from the shiny to the prosaic has been added to the museum collections. The headline items are: a Bell-Baxter School magazine from 1952, a tiny wartime Bell-Baxter sports trophy, a laundry box of 1957 from the old Cupar Laundry, unused feed bags from Rodger’s Mill, a baton bearing a crown and insignia for King William IV (this one needs some research!), a piece of stone used as a trial piece by an apprentice monumental mason, a 1950s cheque from the Cupar Branch of the Clydesdale Bank and some photographs of modern Cupar including one of the recent fire at the trading estate.
