    In the very small town of Cresson, Texas (pop. approximately 2,000) sits the Pate Museum of Transportation. It is a really weird musuem that features large military planes, tugboats, vintage military helicopters and so on. There is one building on the premises that houses some really nice vintage automobiles. However, at the end of the building tucked away in a corner, I found this.

    Yup, gotta admit it, that's the pic I thought would go with your title.

    Very weird find you stumbled on!

    Yes, the guy that runs the place put a stuffed toy monkey in there. The graininess and the distortion is due to the glass- it is very thick and it was very scratched up.

    Yep, I had it linked from a pbase account and apparently pbase is on the fritz again. This crap is getting old with pbase. :grumpy:

    Nice, I like the graininess and the B&W, it fits the period this thing was used in.

    Good find!
