The Photo Hunters theme this week is antique. Do not ask me why, but my Mommie collects antique monkeys, and organ grinder monkey memorabilia. Here is an organ grinder monkey's hat, and the special leather hatbox it goes inside of. A REAL monkey used to wear this hat. Here is another kind of organ grinder monkey's hat. This one is made of felt instead of leather. And this is the little cup the monkey would use to collect his coins in. There is a special lip on the end of the cup so the coins wouldn't fall out if the monkey was not careful. Those monkeys must have been dumb to lose their change!
And here are a bunch of old wind up monkeys. Each monkey does a different crazy thing like: comb his hair, tip his hat, or move his baton. Of course, my favorite is the clown monkey!
