Looks like a rack full of white tires in the window. Wow..neat pic and also the previous one with the picture postcard.
Another great New England pic
What a placid street scene ... WOW ! I want to live there (in that photo !)
The primitive wiring really speaks to the novelty of electricity at the time ... something we take so much for granted today.
I had an female Army Sgt. as my POC to a trouble call at the Finance office at Kandahar Air Field. Seems she had a leak of some sort. I reported to her to see what the problem was and she kept "explaining" how she needed "plugs" for her outlets. It just wasn't making sense. Finally I "connected the dots" of her explanation .... she was looking for the little insert/covers that new parents might stick in their outlets to keep an infant from sticking their tongue in the outlet.
She thought those were made to keep the electricity from leaking out of the outlets, much like a cork in a bottle. Imagine coming into the office in the morning, only to find yourself ankle deep in a flood of electricity! 8^O
That is a great story! I used to work with a lot of things electrical (power, electronics, RF, etc) and dealt with a lot of strange conceptions. I met one fellow that wouldn't even touch the remote control to his TV because he was convinced he would be electrocuted. If he wanted to watch something, he made his wife turn on the TV and change the channels.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Electricity is good stuff. You just don't want to get any of it on you!
