Wood trowel, made in Camp Petawawa, 1940-1942 - en anglais seulement

Wood trowel, unstained, made in Camp Petawawa, 1940-1942. The object is carved from one piece of wood and appears to be roughly finished. As a result, it may have had a utilitarian or functional purpose.

This trowel is part of a group of wood objects collected and preserved by the family of internee Girolamo (George) Capponi.

The trowel along with other wooden objects in the collection, may have been made by Capponi himself. He had written to his wife asking for wood-working tools.
