Everyone here knows the story of Edith Rosenbaum's little toy pig that played The Maxixe when its tail was twisted or pulled. The National Maritime Museum, which has owned the artifact since 2003, has managed to decipher the inner workings of the toy, and to get it to play its song once more. The London Daily Mail has a story at the link, with a YouTube link where the tune may be heard, just as it was on that night 101 years ago:
