1973 Personalized Token

1973 Personalized Token

Posted to Flickr on 21 March 2009. Part of the JD's House of Miscellany series.


When I was three years old my parents went to Chicago to visit one of my dad’s air force buddies. My dad brought back this personalized token from a museum there. It was certainly not his first gift to me, but nevertheless I think of it as something I have "always" had.

The other side of the token reads, "Museum Science Industry."

The misspelling of our last name is amusing, given what a careful person my dad normally is.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
