More Mercer

Following up on my previous post... I couldn't resist putting up more pics from the Mercer Museum.

Here is a hay rake. (Yes, it's labeled, but I can't read it!)

Another view of the whaling boat. See all the layers of stuff hanging?

The bootmaker.

There was a lot of beautiful hardware. These hinges are just gorgeous, aren't they?

We have 250+ photos from this place. Some are blurred, some are duplicates. But there is a lot to see.

This place looks incredible! Kind of reminds me of Greenfield Village (my favorite place in Michigan. :-) )

I'd love to visit this museum.

It is a neat place.

DAD, I don't even know you but I know you'd love this place. Because how could anyone not? Especially a Scout dad?

I love old mechanical devices and machinery. I love how they bothered to make hinges with artistic features. I love all the old tools, how they made the boats, etc, etc. I'd love to be able to use all this stuff and make a replica boat and other stuff using the same tools. I love the craftsmanship.
