Tin of memories

We don’t know who owned this tin of personal belongings. It came to the Archive and Heritage collections from the old Stafford Museum with no details. But what kind of person do you think would have owned it?

There are lots of tools in here, trinkets and bits. Can you guess what kind of job they had, what gender they were, when they might have lived?

What objects do you have at home that are in this tin? You might have your own tin, or drawer of bits and bobs, that aren’t particularly special on their own but might make up an interesting picture all together.
