Number One is a modelers Dream, while number two is where we want to hang out hat and call home, or do I have it in reverse.

It's true that what we love on our model railroads may not be what we'd prefer as a dwelling...

Isn't it an antenna in the corner near the car? If yes, there must be power.
Otherwise, they were forced to build dioramas...

I came across this photo (and many others) on the Flickr site for Boston public Library http://www.flickr.com/photos/boston_public_library/sets/72157604387910465/
Some real great turn of the century posters, photos, etc.
This is of the granite quarry in Milford, Mass, 1889.



If your looking for early 1900 photos don't miss this web site.

Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

Also used by Rednecks in NASCAR as in “wicked loose”, meaning extremely loose (oversteer for you F1 fans).
