"Human Artifacts Found at 46 Ancient Lakes in the Arabian Desert"





I don't know who took the photo, but he left his shadow in it, and he's wearing Indiana Jones' hat.

It's from a Smithsonian online article, August 2017:

I told her my friend collects pictures of wheelbarrows and Lu said, "She should have a picture of the girl *and* her wheelbarrow" So here they are!

Gloucester Docks Museum

Cath GB brought this photo. When she told me where it was, I wrote, "Makes sense! It's not for carrying loose stuff (dirt). So it's for carrying sacks of stuff, or boxes of stuff—packaged goods. Nice."

Looks like the wheel is cast iron, or steel. And the axle is bolted onto the wooden forks. So it looks small, but it would be strong.






I went to find the museum. It has had name changes, but here's the site: Gloucester Waterways Museum

Yarn-bombed wheelbarrow

Cath GB who lives in England sent this, and the notes below:

Sandra, I thought of you today when we spotted this colourful yarnbombed wheelbarrow at the Court Garden in Holt, Wiltshire (a national trust property). Happy to add it to your collection!

There's even is a hedgehog under it, knitted of course.
