Axel And Norma’s Living Quarters

At their new location Axel employed a house keeper, Norma Hassell, who looked after the domestic side of the business. Eventually Axel and Norma married in 1958, and some upgrades were made to the living quarters. There the three of them lived in perfect harmony, until Frank died in 1975, Norma  in 1976, and Axel in 1980, aged 84 years.

These quarters, filled with domestic artefacts of the time, are preserved in their original state as core part of the Museum.
