These were at a museum or gallery in Southbank, Victoria, in late 2016; not sure if they're still there.
Thank you, Donna Anderson, for sending these, and sorry they were lost in the shuffle for a while.
A miniature wheelbarrow illustrating a pot story. Sufficiently obscure.
Well thanks for the wheelbarrow! They won't be able to use wheelbarrows to ship their stuff "worldwide." I wonder which internationall shipping company they think is going to carry their stuff reliably through customs to all those other countries!? :-) People can't legally mail it from Colorado to Oregon. I don't know how UPS or FedEx feel about it.
OH, I read the article. Canadians will be importing shipping containers of the stuff. I wonder if the Chihuahuan druglords will send out some speedboats? Poor landlocked Chihuahua...
Little pirate ships claiming shipping containers, and then.... DOH!!!
I think it will be rendered as a pharmaceutical. Goes where it goes. Chill out, relax, have an open mind. It's all cool.

Golly gosh! Thanks!
|Cath GB brought this photo. When she told me where it was, I wrote, "Makes sense! It's not for carrying loose stuff (dirt). So it's for carrying sacks of stuff, or boxes of stuff—packaged goods. Nice."|
Looks like the wheel is cast iron, or steel. And the axle is bolted onto the wooden forks. So it looks small, but it would be strong.
I went to find the museum. It has had name changes, but here's the site: Gloucester Waterways Museum
We were very surprised by this wheelbarrow, abandoned it would seem, under a large tree in a wooded area of the Millennium Green in Rotherfield. It was so unexpected to find it there, it was far from anywhere it could have been working, but on reflection we decided some children had probably brought it there for play. 😊
Wheelbarrows for you Sandra
Two resting against the wood shed, one working in the woods.
All three live at Wilderness wood, Hadlow Down, East Sussex.
A very special place that, among lots of other great things, has a Friday Home Ed club, and the best zip wire Kes has even been on apparently.
