Foreigners on the Slide show

Welcome to our Foreigners on the Slide show! Join us in the theatrette for a pictorial display of "foreigner" objects made at the Ipswich Railway Workshops from the Museum's collection. There are all types of objects from money boxes to deep sea fishing reels.

Ingenuity or just outright stealing?

Are these foreigners examples of fine craftsmanship and ingenuity or just outright stealing? Either way, let's marvel at what these rascals managed to make and get away with in the years gone by.

*Foreigners was the name given to items made by Workshops employees for outside or private use.
