What a gorgeous weekend it was! Adam and I went up north to spend the weekend with his parents for Mother's day. The weather was perfect and there was no one cloud in the sky. On Saturday we decided to go for a bike ride, and after almost dying due to lack of oxygen (man, I'm out of shape!) we made it back into town.
Franconia is set just above the White Mountains National Forest. "Downtown" is a small street with a convenience store, a hardware store, a bicycle store, a coffee shop, the postal office and Garnet Hill. In the midst of this there is a small property that houses the Franconia Heritage Museum. It was here that I stopped on my tracks when I saw what was outside... just rusting:
Now, I'm not expert, but I don't think you could salvage that... could you?
I got talking with the ladies who were sitting outside the museum and they told me they had a couple more inside, but they didn't know what to do with them. So I went inside and found two Pearl (I know one was a pilot and one was a treadle, but other than that I'm really no expert).
They also had forms still set up from an old card for the Sunset Hill Gulf Club
I also saw these two things, but I had never seen them before. Does anyone know what they are?
They have no idea what to do with them or how to organize them, so I am looking for someone that knows something about them who wants to donate some time to the museum with me and fix up the room like a real printer's room. These beauties deserve better than to let them rust there without being admired.
