A wonderful trip down memory lane 

I was cleaning out my inbox at Google Mail this morning catching up on items that friends, family and fellow hams have sent me that are over due for attention when I ran across this link.

As I watched the slide show it brought back many memories especially some of the Gilbert toys that I had owned as a kid. While not quite old enough to to have listened to a Crosley or an Atwater Kent receiver I have admired them in adds in magazines that I rescued from the land fill when I was a teenager. One of the best things about this slide show is that if like me you are in the Pittsburgh area this museum is within easy driving distance. If you can't get there in person then sit back and take a walk down memory lane with the Picasa photo presentation. Enjoy.
