Silver Souvenir Spoons

Mary Haworth Duerden gave a collection of ninety souvenir spoons to Towneley in 1940 and a further group were added after her death in 1950, Silver spoons

She had married James Edwin Duerden (1865-1937) in 1893 and they had lived in Ireland, Jamaica, the US and South Africa whilst Professor Duerden developed his career as a zoologist, before returning to England in the 1930s. Many of the spoons can be directly related to their journeys around the world. (See biography below).
