If you like a mystery - especially a historical mystery or a museum mystery - then you might enjoy a couple of posts on my local history blog - The Greenockian.
Visiting our local museum - the McLean Museum, part of the Watt Institute, Kelly Street, Greenock - I was puzzled (and intrigued) by a few of the exhibits I came across and tried my best to find out more.
The first one involves this interesting work or art entitled "The Children of Greenock" by Mike McDonnell - Greenock artist, which appears in an exhibit of Greenock shipbuilding items. Read all about it here.
The second mystery is entitled Mysteries at the McLean - the Wooden Spoon. What has a wooden spoon got to do with Greenock's sugar trade? (Hint - it has nothing to do with baking!) Find out here.
I've got a few more Mysteries at the McLean that I am trying to research. Look out for more in the future!
