While I don’t often post images that just show one object, I chose to do with this piece as the condition has drastically changed through the years. This pictures shows the smallest model in our collection, which just happens to be in a flashlight bulb. The pencil is great for comparison as it shows just how small the piece is. We still have this in our collection, but the glass of the bulb has filmed over and the little model is barely visible now.
Here we have a group of Seascouts from Baltimore, Maryland in front of our then main entrance in May of 1949. No doubt they come to tour the museum as we still have groups like this come and visit us from time to time. If possible, we try to provide them with special behind-the-scenes tours, which are always a lot of fun.
