On the other hand, MacKay’s collections also represent the material and cultural characters of Taiwanese society more than 100 years ago, and also their collector’s point of view and focuses. When analyzing the types of collections, we found that clothing was the largest category, totaling around 150 pieces. The next largest categories were recreational and hobby items and religious and ritual items. Tools for daily use and manufacturing tools make up a relatively small portion.
