Garbage Tongs

Country of Origin: Canada

Year: ca. 1950

Materials: Brass

These artifacts are items that were used in our early history as a Museum. These tongs were used by staff to clean the grounds before opening each day. Staff would use these to pick up garbage and had accompanying bags. This is part of a series that remain in the Eldon House collection as a legacy of our early days as a museum, but are no longer used by our staff.
