Remembering our Evolution

My great uncle, Raphael Salaman, had a passion for old tools.  He wrote two dictionaries, one about wood-working, the other about leather-working tools.  During his life he assembled a vast collection of implements once used by the likes of coopers, wheelwrights and blacksmiths.

For 40 years Raph’s collection has been open to the public at the St Albans’ Museum, UK.  However, it is now threatened with being dismantled and put into storage.

His grandson, my second cousin, Saul Wordsworth, is hoping to keep this collection together.  If you would like to support him in his attempt to preserve this catalogue of the working man’s evolution, please sign his petition.
