    Yup, I concur with my distinguished colleague.

    Number 5 is one of those fireplaces called an insert. You buy it and slide
    it into place. It wasn't built into the home.

    Haven't the faintest what ten is. Could be some form of life in the sea.
    Cough lozenges? Old mangled buttons covered with cloth? Something
    you'd find in a thrift store?

    Thanks for the pics, Diane. If I find some energy I will hunt some up. Haven't
    had much pep lately.

    Hi, y'all, PART 2........

    Well, according to wiki,

    Picture 5 is
    a Franklin Stove

    Picture 6 is indeed Graham Crackers!

    Picture 7: Parking meter
    I laughed when I saw the "INSERT NICKEL" inscription. I do remember those days, nickels and dimes for the meter.

    Picture 8: Slot Machines, from (per Wiki) Wookie Hole Caves.

    Picture 9: Soft-serve ice cream. When I was a child, all the kids in the neighborhood would wait for "Dairy Dan, The Ice Cream Man" to come to a stop on our street. Oh so yummy! Plain vanilla was my favorite.

    Picture 10: Circular tea bags!

    Thanks for playing!! :) I've been looking for pics, and hopefully I'll find more soon. Or Rock will find some pics. :)

    HUGS, Diane

    Hi, GB.

    Don't gots much energy. I told my brother in Minnesota I'd send him a book
    on one branch of the family, but haven't the energy to get it wrapped. I
    forgot Gordon's birthday. Haven't been able to think of anything to write
    on a belated card.

    I feel like the dot on the old TV screens. Just fading away.

    Hi Soul, good to see you again.

    I don't know what no. 10 is. Hard to tell without any scale. Could be
    floor mats for the car. Or chocolate candy.

    Don't know about no. 11 either, but I will try to keep it in mind.

    No. 12 looks like a pencil sharpener.

    No. 13 might be some sort of candy/wafer.

    No. 14 looks like an old box camera from Deutschland.

    No. 15 could be ice cream cones.

    No. 16 looks like hot pads or hot plates to protect the table from
    hot pans, dishes, etc.

    No. 17. Ammunition for cap guns.

    Tinker Toys?
  10. rockgor

    rockgor Well-Known Member

    Hi GB

    Yup, tinker toys. Named after Gordon Tinker. Been around for a century.
    The currents sets are apparently available in wood or plastic and contain
    lottsa new stuff like pulleys.

    Hi Soul! And Rock, and GB!

    I tried to google your pics, Soul, but I'm not having much luck.

    I do think that PICS 10 and 15 translate from a website to: "Sweets of Yesteryear". That's as far as I got, before my software (adblock plus) blocked me.

    PIC 14 does look like a camera, as Rock said.

    PIC 16 looks like a drink (or hot dish) coaster, made from wicker perhaps?? I say this as I'm sitting here looking at my wicker basket. :)

    PIC 11: I figured out "The White Cat." But that's about all I figured out for this pic.

    Great pics!

    Diane :)

    Hi everyone! I haven't played any games here for a while.

    #10 - Tea bags - Tetley here in Canada.
    #12 - It looks like a bean slicer for french beans.
    #13 - Possibly some type of marshmallow candy?
    #15 - Popsicles?

    Hi Tiger Lilea

    Nice to see you and Bella again. How are things in BC? (I think most
    of us live in AD.) Glad to see you feel up to posting. Some days I do
    and some days I just think about it.

    Hi Rock - I haven't been doing much posting lately either. Ever since being on antibiotics back in March my fatigue is much worse. I've since met a couple of people who had the same reaction to Amoxicillin - one of them doesn't have CFS and never had a problem with fatigue before taking the antibiotic.

    Here on the coast of BC it is wet and cold. A week and a half ago we were having a heat wave. The weather has been crazy this past year.

    Hope you are doing well.

    14 YES old box camera from Deutschland.

    15 Not ice cream cones or popsicles but yes "Sweets of Yesteryear". We called them syrup soldiers. Basically caramalized melted sugar that would be rock hard.

    16 YES hot pads or hot plates to protect the table from hot pans, dishes, etc. made from wicker. Many moments I dreamed away playing with my fingers following the shapes untill my dreaming got brutally interupted by my mom standing there with a hot pan :D I think she still has them.

    17. Right on on ammunition for cap guns. They would also work by rubbing them against a brick wall with your finger. Slightly more riskier to burn your finger that way though :D

    Soul* Well-Known Member

    Hmmmm first part of my post disappeared...
    10. Ahh I just noticed I doubled up the number, not car mats, yes candy, liquorice mats. You could peel them apart or stuff your mouth with one in whole and then drool to keep it all in :p

    11. This clue might help

    12. no pencil sharpner YES beanslicer but not for french beans but for flat beans. Huge long flat beans:
    They would come out like this:

    13. Yes candy not marshmallowy like though, but like chalkblocks. Super lightweigth but hard blocks that would melt on your tongue. I think you could actually use them as chalks too.

    Soul, many years ago I used to own a bean cutter very similar to that one. I forgot that they cut the beans across rather than down into strings.

    Interesting stuff, Soul. I kinda wondered if that battery was a package
    of cigarettes. Never saw a bean cutter that wasn't a knife. We have
    long beans here. Gordon grows them every year on a trellis made of
    string. Each bean pod gets about a foot and a half long.

    Here's something from my teen years. (I kinda think maybe this
    was posted before. Can't keep track of things anymore.)


    And a few more pics from he past.

    Good pics Rock! I'll take a guess at some of them.

    18. Tabletop juke box, don't remember what they were called but they were on tables in diners and restaurants. B6, D3, etc.

    19. Coffee Pot, maybe for camp stove?

    20. Milk pitcher or creamer?

    21. T.V. dinner trays, had a bunch of those over the years!

    22. ?

    23. Ice Cream maker or churn?

    Very good, GB. The coffee pot is probably enamelware which is made by
    fusing powdered glass to metal. I don't know, but I suspect this stuff will
    last pretty much forever.

    The pitcher is carnival glass. It is the opposite of enamelware. With
    carnival glass a layer of metallic salts is used to coat the glass item.
    It's called carnival glass because it was often used as prizes at carnivals,
    fairs, etc. I can remember seeing large stacks of it at the County Fair
    coin toss. During the depression it was sometimes given away in
    a drawing to lure customers into the movie houses. Saw a lot of it in
    the homes of older folks when I was a kid. Comes in shades of orange, green,
    blue, red. All iridescent colors. My mother had a long green dish that
    was the perfect shape to hold a stalk of celery or a banana. Here's a
    blue item. A candy dish maybe?


    Number 22 is a collection of darning eggs. Also used to see them when I
    was a kid. Some were egg shaped; some had a handle. The egg was
    usually made of wood, but could be porcelain. A smooth stone or
    even a gourd could be used. You inserted the item into the sock you
    were mending. Gave you a stable working surface.
