Day No.30 – A New Addition

P1130445

It’s been a week since I’ve updated the blog, given that the whole front room was turned upside down to make room for a small library wall. Lots of wonderful books with subjects including steam engines, thermodynamics, chemistry, refrigeration, brick laying, gear cutting, clockmaking, electroplating, heating, gem prospecting, metallography, gemology, history, and lexicography. Once the room is finished, I will post some photos of the library wall, but in the mean time here are a few of the books.

I am happy to announce, it looks like I will be ready to begin sorting the back room by mid next week! You can expect daily posts once again.
