Strange Collections by SB

Strange Collections

Search the web for collectors of unusual things and write a short report about them.  (More! 4, Exercise 8, p. 101)


I've found two different collectors of unusual things.  Louise J. Greenfarb from the USA has a collection of 35,000 authentic fridge-magnets.  She's been collecting them since the 1970s.  Her first fridge-magnet was a present from her son.  Everyone in the town of Henderson, Nevada know her as the 'magnet lady'.  But a stranger collection is the one that belongs to Wong Ting Man from Hong Kong in China.  No, he's not a fan of smartphones.  He began collecting instant cameras in 1992.  He's got 1042 different models which is not the biggest collection in the world but it's worth $130,000.  When interviewed by the World Record Academy about what his family thought of his collection he said the following.  My wife said: "if all your camera not keep in home, then everything is fine"... "She do support me to collect.", said Mr. Wong Ting Man.
