Default A ride up to the Royal Ontario Museum

This was the museum of my tour that offered more rejection to picture taking; as if its glass vitrines were picture proof. These are the ones less critical, out of the circa 300 shots made.

Thanks for sharing Fernando - I spent many happy hours as a child viewing those displays. Brings back a lot of memories.

Great pics, as always (I never get to go anywhere- ). I especially like the Sinclaire saber in that middle pic between those two English Civil War broadswords- nice!)

A bit offtopic, maybe, but - what is that revolver on 7th photo? Never seen anything of that kind.

By all means!
That would be a (variation of the) LeMat revolver. If you browse the Web on it, you will find plenty material.

Thank you Mark. If i knew you fancy such style, i would have asked the curator to borrow it for a while ... and send it down to NC .

Yes, it would look good in the collection. I might stand corrected, though. It might be more of a drussage vs a Sinclaire.
