Cleaning Out The Playhouse
I am part of the male species that suffers from a strange affliction. There is no known name for it but involves the inability to throw anything away. It's gotten to the point that my wife bags up my ragged old farm clothes and deposits them in her mother's trash, because she knows that if she didn't I'd dig through the bag and find at least one article of clothing that I thought still suitable to wear.
I make attempts to clean my playhouse, and usually after a period of time I wind up throwing out perhaps one cleaning rag or a slip of paper. My playhouse, which is a remodeled granary, is my haven for sorting and reminiscing.
Let's take a look at a few things I pulled out this week. They happen to all be automotive related.
There is some type of Essex cap. I'm guessing it's for the gas tank. It's probably a 1927-29 model.
I really doubt I'll ever need a '69 Chrysler tank heater. I guess I keep it because I also have the original box and instructions.
Pretty remarkable that this isn't broken. It's a headlight lens for an Overland car. They were made between 1903-13.
I think this is really cool. It's an Essex brake light. Note the word "Stop" on it.
I like this because I enjoy any type of old paper. I doubt there were very many 1936 Plymouth Delivery Vans made.
