G'day all,

Pictures follow once the scanner decides to make nice, but I'm very, very stoked about my latest market find and can't wait to share it!

Today at the local old-stuff-and-veges market, I acquired an old wooden box, about the size of a large shoebox.  Inside are four metal drawers, each containing 25 old rubber stamps.  And I mean OLD rubber stamps, used in a school in about 1930.

They haven't been used for goodness knows how many decades, and have never been cleaned or maintained at all, yet remarkably nearly all of them are still usable!

It's a pretty eclectic mix.  There's a huge array of buses, trams, cars, trucks and tractors, a lot of lions and tigers, a few farm animals and a few I think are supposed to be either historical or biblical - people in togas and the like.  For some reason there's also several suspension bridges!
