The Mummy’s Thumb

It’s been dead 5,000 years.

Or has it? Will it ever die?

“The strangest thing in captivity”  is my offering this week for Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge

It dates  from the 1930’s and is one of many working vintage amusements in a Penny Arcade on Southport Pier.

Did you give it a go and see the Mummy’s thumb, Helen?

    No, by the time I got to this I’d spent all my pocket money! But next time definitely . Hope it’s not too traumatic

These kind of objects are fantastic. Years ago we visited the Museum of Automata in York and had so much fun there.

    That sounds a good place to visit.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
