Inikah sosok Harimau Jawa ? Sebagai orang Jawa saya belum pernah mengetahui seperti apa penampakan Harimau Jawa yang sudah punah itu.
Namun beberapa tahun lalu, ketika saya menginap di sebuah perkebunan milik PTP XII di Glanmore, Kabupaten Banyuwangi saya menemukan foto kuno. Terlihat dalam foto itu, seorang Belanda dan pribumi memegangi seekor harimau yang telah mati.
Karena di dekatnya terdapat senjata api, saya beranggapan bahwa mereka baru saja memburu harimau tadi. Yang jelas foto kuno itu dibuat pada saat Belanda masih menguasai perkebunan di Glanmore.
Dalam benak saya kemudian berasumsi bahwa, mungkin saja inilah sosok Harimau Jawa yang kini tinggaal misteri itu... #perkebunanbelanda#glanmore, #harimaujawa#banyuwangi#fotokuno#huntingfoto#perkebunancokelat
#Museum30 Day 6: Label - Our volunteer Judie is very talented. She paints decorative slates which we sell in our museum shop. Today we added labels to a new selection of slates. The slates are actually original roof tiles from Glanmore, meaning you can take a little piece of #Glanmore home with you! #BellevilleON

Glanmore is known for its collection of cat and dog paintings by British artist Horatio Couldery, but we also have paintings of other animals including birds, horses and even a polar bear! #Museum30 Day 5 - Animal #BellevilleON#Glanmore
#Museum30 Day 3: Self-Portrait - Bertram Couldery painted this copy of "Self Portrait at the Age of 34" by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn as a way to study art and improve his painting techniques. It is on display in the Breakfast Room "Art of Copying" exhibit at #Glanmore. #BellevilleON
Whoops, we got a little behind in our Insta #Museum30 posts! Day 2: Black and white. Historic photos like this image of the main hall at Glanmore are important resources for restoration details! #BellevilleON#Glanmore
Sometimes, it's just great to bring new people into the mix. ~ John Oates
Sometimes it is necessary to go with the flow and experience something new. Accept the opportunity even when you don't feel like it is the right moment. Just because if we wait for the perfect moment we will miss a lot of stuff in life, and we will regret it.
Might as well share my photo that’s growing in fame on Google, but I guess thinking your image is famous for being on Google is like thinking your phone number is cause it’s in the phone book(but I guess nowadays it would be hard to find any new phone numbers in an old phone book).
It’s some wreath of hair contributed by each family member who’d lived at the Glanmore house in Belleville(I think that’s the gist. Glad to share the randomness.

Congrats to those of you that identified our #WhatIsIt Artifact. The Artifact is a Bagatelle game board. Bagatelle is a game in which balls or marbles are hit and then allowed to roll down a sloping board on which there are holes and slots, each numbered with the score achieved if a ball goes into it,with pins acting as obstructions. Think of it as a Victorian version of Plinko! You can see this Bagatelle board as part of our current display of historic toys! #WhatIsIt#BellevilleON#Glanmore#AntiqueToys
