|The archives are a little like Cracker Jacks: "A Surprise In Every Box." |
This box contained company records from the late Depression Era into World War 2.
More rolling hoop and drum parts appeared, some pressed tin party noise-makers (woo-hoo!), a huge number of small wooden buttons, some original drum artwork, and much more. But the important boxes will remain unopened until the archival containers are on site, then we will clean and transfer the contents of boxes dating back to the 1800's into their new containers. At that point the archives will start to look like real, researchable archives.
|Original artwork, likely used to present new drum design concepts. |
Versions of the Native American and air transportation designs went into production.

The ancient freight elevator, which was originally hoisted by a rope system, also put in a full day......

Imagine yo-heave-ho'ing an elevator full of freight up and down 4 floors.
