SUM OF THE PARTS
This picture from the late 1800s made me do a double-take today. Here's the Gizmodo post that goes with it:
This piano repair box, perfected by Henry Studley, does a great job of fixing up instruments, but it's careful placement of knicknacks also makes it beautiful.
Studley was an organ and piano maker, as well as a carpenter and
mason, who worked for the Smith Organ Co. at the turn of the 20th
His tool chest was loaned by his grandson to an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History, until a private collector bought it.
When closed, it's dimensions are roughly 39-inches x 20-inches x 9-inches. When opened though, it widens out to 40 x 40. [acriacao]
What struck me about the picture was how much it looked like a printed circuit board, which of course has been a critical component of so many tools less than a century later.
