The 7th day of Christmas

Swans and swimming are quite well represented amongst our museum artefacts. In pre NHS times, Hospital Week was a big fund raising time in Market Lavington and Easterton and the carnival was much enjoyed and very well supported. If you type carnival into the search box on the front page of our museum blog, you will find some twenty items about Hospital Week carnivals. Perchance, among the many photographs of people in their costumes, we see a beautifully created swan on a push cart.

For more information about the Edwardian bathing costume, now over a hundred years old, and the lady who wore it, see Great Grandmother’s Bathing Costume.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
