Collins Barracks - covering your feet since...?

The last few photos taken at the National Museum in Collins Barracks; these show socks & slippers & other sock related items. Like a big eejit, I did not take very many, if any notes on the day, so please enjoy the photos in total ignorance! It's almost strange to think of something as humble as a sock on display in a museum, but I suppose many archaeological finds are as everyday as pots, shoes, & tools for carrying out daily chores. I also cannot imagine knitting a stocking big enough to require that enormous sock blocker.
