  1. Very clever response Siobhan, loved that you shared both color and B&W. Loved the typewriters which are not only symmetric with each other but also their keyboards are all symmetric – excellent. Also loved the old cameras (of course!)

    • Thanks, Tina! I had to do a little searching for that prompt. I’m glad you liked the old typewriters and cameras – tools from the past!

  2. We were in Lander Wyoming just a few days ago. We stopped to get a new battery for my car’s key fob. If I’d have known this museum was there, you can bet I would have stopped. Oh well, next time!

    • Sorry you missed it, but it’s definitely worth a stop in the future, John. We had a nice stay there at the Sleeping Bear RV Park in our campervan and a good meal at The Antler Restaurant.

    • Thanks, Ann-Christine! Yeah items can be similar and still fit the definition of symmetry. I loved those moccasins!
