During the summer we went for a little break to the Ardmore in Waterford.
These are three photos that remind me of those warmer days.
This little beauty is a hand bellows for a firew. It is in a tiny rural pub on the outskirts of Ardmore and it still works over a hundred years since it was made.
This cast of a half penny adorns the wall of a small dining area to the rear of The Spire Cafe, in Lismore. As I remember predecimal coins this was a bit of a surprise.
However this cafe gave me even more of a surprise, when I went inside I found the meter below on a shelf and they let me take it down and place it on a table to take a photo.
In a former life I used to use analogue meters on a regular basis.
My father had one from this manufacturer when I was a very young. That was when we had lead in solder.
Sometimes you should look at the back of a thing.
