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…

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.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. 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!!! 😉

  2. 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 🙂

  3. I had to comment on this one — that’s the kind of bed I want! surrounded by books! Thanks for sharing this!
