World Museum of Mining - Part 3

July 21, 2016  •  2 Comments

You can see that they set this up as an actual town with wooden board walks and all.  It really did give you the feel of an old mining town - or any old town from the late 1800s to early 1900s.   On the corner the prominent brick building of course is the bank!   Along with the fancy car. This cash register was in the gift shop and I had to shoot it.   

National Cash Register 1912

These cash registers have a wood base with drawers for cash and supplies.  They are the largest series that NCR manufactured.

This model enabled each sales clerk to have their own cash drawer and separate totals for individual cash responsibility.  The drawers had different sounding bells and locks to prevent others from using your drawer.

 

 

One display was an old fire engine (don't remember the year) that was about 40 feet long.   Mom read that each wheel had it's own actual engine to propel it.
The school yard of course! There was also a super cool photography studio set up!   A great shot to end this post with I think.

What a fascinating series! Looking at your cool images really highlights how crazily far technology has brought us in such a short time.
