Rivet from HMS Victory 1752

Contributor: Barbara Stevens

Collection Date: 13.3.08 2.20pm

‘People would keep bits as souvenirs and turn them into different objects.’ ‘All the rivets taken off the Victory were thrown into a big bin – some of my friends (dockies) kept hold of bits.’ ‘The man who made it (Tom Slight) lives on Powerscourt Road. It reminds me of my husband bringing it home.’

We would love to collect more memories and hear about how the photograph provokes memories for you
