Carob Museum. A Quick Glance at Tradition

It caught my attention during my recent trip to Cyprus. I can’t quite resist to tradition related things, little things that connect us to our past/ ancestors and blah blah.. How did people live back then? Which stages did technology, industries pass until automatisms are widely  used  today in almost every field. Poor  photos I know but still I found the whole concept pretty intriguing.

The Carob Mill in Lemesos (Limassol) was originally built in the early 1900s when carobs were one of the main exports of Cyprus. They were used in the manufacture of such products as film, medicine, sweets and chocolates. Most of the machinery used in processing the carobs is intact and exhibited in a building that has been renovated so as to combine the authentic atmosphere of the past with the sophisticated high tech look of the present.
