It was very interesting. It showed old steam engines. Some made of wood,
some made of metal. They had figures set up to look like passengers waiting for the train.
A fruit wagon loading freight at the station in 1895.
A display on Southern Railway.
The army crosses the country.
Another steam engine.
One of the first cars. I think it would have been fun to ride in one like this but I sure wouldn't have wanted to cross the US in it.
The traveler renting a cabin. For some reason this display reminded me of the traveling salesman.
A beautiful car, but more modern. I would love to own a Buick like this one. Very classic.
The boys found this domestic gasoline engine intriguing. Grandpa used one of these on the farm before they got electricity in 1961.
Another interesting display. The boys found all of these things remarkable and wondered how people ever survived back then. LOL
This diorama was pretty. I love water wheels. Imagine running a factory or grist mill by this means.
We didn't have much time to spend here that day and only were able to see things on the main level. We did get back another day and I have more photos that I will post later. I loved the Horticultural Building and these two places were my favourites on the trip. I will post more photos tomorrow.
