Old Stuff

Vero Beach, FL

From last summer. Here are a few pics from the wonderful Walter P. Elwool Museum in Amsterdam, NY.

Two views of a marvelous artifact. A signature edition of Edison's phonographs. It is in marvelous shape and we heard it actually play.

This nameplate shows that stupid licensing terms and legal malarkey are not an invention of the Internet age.

This one makes me feel really old. I have the identical Post Versalog slide rule on boart Tarwathie, as well as several open end wrenches that look like the above.

Look at this wonderful steam whistle. It's huge. I would love to hear it in action.
