Have you ever been to a museum and shouted in horror, “Hey! What’s all my stuff doing in here!?”
Please share your stories in the comments! I’d love to hear about them.
Maple Ridge Museum, BC
Geez, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Looking over at one of the display cases with the various generations of telephones that had been used over time, I almost cried when I saw a cellphone from the early 2000’s. Geez….how old am I?! I wanted to bolt out of there before they put me in a display case….sigh.
It’s actually a creation that took over 25+ years, by The Dewdney-Alouette Railway Society (DARS).
Seeing all working parts and details that went into this was amazing. For example, peering into the windows of the model buildings, you’ll see that great detail went into making the furniture, people, store supplies and everything else that represents the building you’re viewing.
There was so much to see!
Here’s a Welder (flickering light!)…… and a Motorcycle Mechanic Shop.
It was definitely pretty neat to see how they used old black and white photographs (On display for you to compare) as references to build sections, representing the Port Haney area at the height of the railway logging era of the 1920’s.
