Bostock and Wombwell's Medallion.
When the project met up with Henry Marshall he brought out a rather lovely little medallion for us to look at. It was found quite by chance in a house in Scarborough.
HM Our house, the second house we bought here was a big old house. We were cleaning up everywhere and in a drawer as I was cleaning the house up I found a little blue leather pouch. And inside was a gold medallion with a lion on it or something and it had on it Bostock and Wombwell's Travelling Menagerie. Now they used to travel with John Shaw's father and my father. Bostock and Wombwells, a big travelling Menagerie, always came to Hull Fair originally. Big outfit, loads of carts and horses.
