Market Lavington Museum

A final collection of quiz answers


Here are the answers for items 7 to 10 from the ‘What is it?’ quiz staged by Market Lavington Museum at the Market Lavington Village Fete on 12th June 2010

Item 7 was an early 20th century metal puzzle owned by James Welch - father of Peggy Gye

Item 8 was a World War II car headlamp blackout hood

Item 9 was a 19th century tool used to set saw teeth to the required angle

Item 10 - a 19th century zinc bait box

A visitor to the fete suggested that this item would have had maggots kept in it and could be lowered into the water so that maggots escaped slowly through the holes to attract fish.
