Interesting post!

I wonder if some of the numbers are correct, though: the statement that "the bucket could hold 70 cubic metres of sand at a time" seems a bit generous, looking at the photos of the bucket, and doing the math.


Howard - thanks for the comment. On thinking about it, you have a good point, 70 cubic meters seems significantly more than the apparent capacity of the bucket. I checked the brochure from the museum and that is the number they quote, but I agree, it doesn't seem quite right!
