A week or so ago I saw a photo of this object in a local paper. I don’t yet know any details about it except that it was a primitive submarine that had something to do with goldmining and that it had been in storage in a farm shed for a long time. The reason that it was in the paper was that it had been moved to the Middlemarch museum.

Seeing it in the paper aroused my interest so yesterday I drove the hour or so there in order to photograph it.
