Archibald Brewster with his original prototype of the military tank. Further study and development would lead to the addition of a gun barrel.

Looks like a flywheel for one of the early engines that powered factories.

Somebody researched the Egyptian building manual, re: last big stone on top of the pyramid.

It's one of the casting wheels for our film factory..  In the early 1900's Gleason corp made it and that is how they transported it up ~1.5 miles to the film machine factory.  Those babies are $$$$$$$  Perfectly flat and centered..  Just one of many throughout our film-making history..  Sadly they have been scrapping these as film goes away..  There's an old one standing up next to Ridge road in Rochester..  I thought this picture was neat too..  

 

Now you know the rest of the story!


  • KennyP and shorty have said thanks
