Cut throat razor which belonged to Jack Rasmussen who migrated with his wife to Victoria from Scandinavia in 1921. Jack is listed on the razor as having played Mrs. Neptune in a mock court. The donor John Gordon-Kirkby met the couple while working in Cobram from 1962-1964. He himself had migrated as an assisted British migrant from Morocco in 1961 and the museum holds a collection of items relating to John's migration experience. The Rasmussens had no family in Australia and befriended the donor's family as their own. Jack entrusted the razor to the donor for safekeeping as a curiosity.
