Remembers the Museum before the war when Mr. Bolton was the curator. Particular memory is of the passageway leading to the annex being full of butterflies. Also the chamber of horrors in the basement including a dummy of a man in rags in a cell lying on a bed with a dummy rat running over him. There was a piano at the top of the stairs that his father always wanted to play. The curator was proud of a collection of snake skins from all over the world.
