Travel Trinkets: It's a SPAM!

Sometimes a travel trinket can be a piece of family history.

Himself's Uncle A worked for Hormel Foods for many years, eventually retiring for the company.


In his job as a meat cutter, he used this mesh glove to protect his hand.


On one of our visits, he and Aunt D took us to the SPAM Museum.  This display showed exactly what his section dressed like.  Here he is showing us how the glove would be used.


The mesh is very tightly woven, yet it is amazingly flexible... and heavy!



When we returned from the museum visit, Uncle A gave Himself this glove that he had used.

An heirloom.

Thank you for coming walkabout with me! I enjoy comments and will try to answer questions quickly if I have a way to reply to you. Sorry I have had to put the word verification back on... the spam jerks (especially the Serbian ones... yeh, I check your addys) have been overloading me lately.

However... I do not approve comments whose purpose is to spam. My readers do not deserve such garbage. I also do not allow anonymous comments. If you have something to say, then put your name to it.
