Origins of the Afro Comb!
Once in a while, I give into that side of me that likes to pretend it is very cultured indeed. That and I'd take any excuse to have a day out in Cambridge (I lived there as a teen after all).
So off I went with a friend in tow to the Fitzwilliam Museum for some culture: African Culture.
Of course, there was hair involved, so I had to be looking fly (check out my style for the day here!).
I really liked the exhibit. A lovely array of combs and their history and cultural significance through the ages: 6, 000 years!
And in the modern section, there were pressing combs and video footage of ladies and gentlemen weighing in on their thoughts on combs (afro combs mainly). Lots of familiar faces and definitely worth the trip!
Then I strolled through the town centre and even found the market stall that sold me sweets as said teen! lol! Not for all the dentists in the world would I buy that stuff yesterday! Looking might have given me a cavity!
Enjoy the pictures below! God bless.
