After ascending the stairs in the previous post we came to what I imagine is referred to as the archives. Rows and rows and rows of inventions… memorabilia… anything and everything. Way too much to look at in one visit. Here’s a glimpse of some of what we saw.
Phonograph .. filaments .. record player .. typewriters .. calculator .. toasters .. irons .. camera .. film projector… and I have no idea what the last picture is .. lol
He also invented the first electric pen…
By 1880 the electric pen was in decline but had a second life in the 1890’s when it was converted into the first electric tattoo needle. CLICK HERE
You may be wondering what Dawn & Deb are looking at …
These two bibliophiles are looking at the 3-story tall… library…
Not only filled with books and statues…
… but a bed as well !
Right outside the library is the time clock and what I think is also a clock of some kind… whatever it is it’s beautiful.
As eyes are the windows of a persons soul I think windows are the soul of a building… here are just a few of the window pictures I took.
Join me for the next installment when we see the light ! 🙂

pretty sure the *not knowing what the last picture is* is a telegraph machine…. looks like 30 keys….i’m thinking for 26 letters, a period, comma, apostrophe, and question mark….. if i’m wrong, sounds like pretty brilliant bs to me, right!!! 😉

Sounds brilliant to me 🙂 I think you’ve got it. I should have taken closer look at description but I was just taken with the beauty of the machine 🙂
