Mauchlineware Souvenir Thimble Case
Grantown Museum

In Victorian times, Grantown-on-Spey became a fashionable holiday resort. The railways made travel to the Highlands accessible and comfortable.

Grantown became a favourite spot for the Victorian upper and middle classes to take in the air and to indulge in healthy outdoor pursuits. This little wooden box, designed to hold a thimble for sewing, features an image of the square. It was designed as a souvenir for tourists to buy and take home.
