Pioneers were often very
poor people. Artifacts like this one would have belonged to a more
wealthy family. This child's toy safe belonged to a child in Calgary
about 100 years ago. It would have been used to save money. It
is made out of a fine metal such a pewter. Its knob turns just like
a real safe, although it doesn't lock. It is a part of the Glenbow
Museum's incredible pioneer artifacts collection.
