Pond Farm Museum
Our museum is located in an little old house on the farm. It is one of the houses that was built just after the war. At first the farmer lived in there till about 1927, the year he moved to the newly built farm. The small houses then were used by the workmen.
In the years after the war, those men, on Sundays when they had a day off, went searching on the fields to find and collect war material. By selling this, they often earned more then their monthly pay!
The construction and the design of the little house reflect the spirit of the early 20th century. It's austure and modest in size and furnishing. The wooden ceiling, doors and staircase, all have the scent of those bygone days.
Out of this aspect I decided to place the older objects, that were stored on the attic, in what has become my museum: a typical old stove, chairs, horse collars, irons, wafer irons. The museum now contains war relics and antique objects. Still there was one problem. Since, at the time, the only source of light in the house was an oil lamp, it had no electricity supply. In October 2007 I started my job at a lighting company and that gave me the chance to purchase lightfittings that are now installed in the museum(www.supermodular.com). Visiting the place in the evening now is possible as well.
