YOKES! and more

The following images are from the Mercer Museum in Doylestown Pennsylvania. The first one is a mask called 'goat glasses' or 'punishment glasses' that, like the dunce cap, misbehaving students were made to wear by the teacher to shame and reform them. Following this one are photos of the room dedicated to implements and instruments used in the rearing and raising of livestock. I thought these might be of interest to you, Morgan.
