Does anyone have an exhibit of "things no longer useful" or "prior solutions"?

There was a Button-Hook as tool, not just a alang term in sports. My grandfather had a square with 25, 50, 75 & 100 on its sides; you put it in the window to order ice by the pound.

I have a bound copy of SCRIBNER'S that describes how department stores worked in 1897. No computers, a hugh stable for horse drawn delivery, live dress models, manufacturing inside the store, etc.

This is great, I will definitely check out the exhibit at the Tampa Museum of Art. Read my article below about the history of the Midcentury Modern architectural style in Florida, on the preservation blog for the Florida Historical Society.

I love the celebration of art! Bravo on these exhibits!
