musée de traditions populaires, limogne en quercy

Above the tourist information office in Limogne en Quercy is a delightful little museum. 2 rooms set out as a typical living room and bedroom of the early to mid 20th century and one full of tools. 

One of my favourite things is the one in the photo just above - a tool for clamping together a bundle of faggots and dispensing the string to tie it together with. The faggots would have been used for lighting the bread oven that most houses had (outside the house not in it).

All the objects are numbered and you can consult a list which tells you what their use was. It's closed now for the Winter but will open at Easter next year.
