The Museum of English Rural Life in Reading, UK has many artifacts from a much older, lost Britain. Among them is a 155-year old mousetrap. The appropriately-named Perpetual Mouse Trap by Colin Pullinger & Sons goes by the tagline “will last a lifetime.”
In fact, it will last several lifetimes. The Assistant Curator recently found a dead mouse in the unbaited trap. That’s quality equipment! You can see more photos of the trap here.
