Ye old-timey quiz

microfilmreader

Today I think I’ll make a small quiz:

What is this thing pictured above? Is it:

A) a piece of old junk

B) a microfilm reader

C) a fancy lamp

D) all of the above

.

.

.

.

.

The answer, of course is D. This old piece of machinery is one of our library’;s decommissioned microfilm readers, now residing in our archives. I’m not certain if it’s working, even that it looks fairly intact. We plan to turn it into a fancy lamp if we can make the underside light to work.
