Macro Monday Series: Week 5

During our Macro Mondays Series we share a macro shot of something in our collection on Mondays for you to guess. We then give you the answer on Wednesdays. Then, our Curator Jaydeyn, tells you a bit about the item in detail on Thursdays. This is a fantastic way for you to get to know our collection from the comfort of your own home. 
Follow along on our social media channels, or check the website weekly for the new item!

Guessing this week’s macro is no easy task!
Have a good guess before scrolling down for the answer!

This one did throw some people, although you wouldn’t want to throw it! Yep, this is a brick from the Harbour Master’s House. The House turned 100 this year, yet we don’t have very many early photos of it (in fact, this is the only one we’ve been able to find!). If you have any please do feel free to send them in or comment below so we can marvel at the architecture! Find out more about the house  and brick making tomorrow.
