New acquisitions

The photograph shows some of the new objects on display in Lyme Regis Museum. As well as objects found on the beach and old souvenirs of Lyme, there is the deckchair attendant's ticket machine and branding iron. Both objects were rescued from the Marine Parade shelters before the recent refurbishment work started.

The 'brand' on the branding iron reads LRTC, for Lyme Regis Town Council. It was used to mark deckchairs to deter people from walking off with them!
