Sharon Jones and Donald Kelly both celebrated their birthdays in Washington, DC, and had their photos taken by a local Scurlock Studio photographer. We don't know much about their lives but we plan to include one of the photos in "Celebrating Our Memories, Celebrating Our Lives: Snapshots of African American Communities." It opens in September. Pick which one we should include by clicking the link in our profile. #PhotographyHistory #AfricanAmericanHistory #AfricanAmericanHistory #AnniversaryPhotography http://s.si.edu/PhotoVote2

Commuting on two wheels today for #BikeToWorkDay? Watch out for scorchers during crush hour! 🚲🔥 This bicycle bell is from around 1900. As more cyclists took to urban streets already crowded with streetcars, horse-drawn vehicles, and pedestrians, cities passed ordinances requiring cyclists to stay off sidewalks, keep to a speed limit, and use bells to signal their approach. Scorchers, or super fast and reckless riders, were considered a danger, especially during the busy commuting times that we now call "rush hour." #ObjectProject #NationalBikeMonth

lesliepumpkinqueen : 😄😄😄😄 I always had a bell on my trike when I was little!
mary_dtw : @wheelhousedetroit
transportationlibrary : #bicyclesinthelibrary @txstatecapitol! And what a great term 'scorchers' is!

Peek behind the scenes: World War I Army Reserve Nurse Elizabeth Marsh's ID card and uniform elements of US Army Nurse (left) and US Army Contract Surgeon (right) from World War I. In center, photo of US Navy Nurse Corps. According to our conservator, the (very petite) leather gloves are hardest to preserve. #HistMed #MedHist #worldwar1 #FashionHistory

Can you imagine if your toys were steam-powered as a kid? This mini Huber Traction engine model is a working steam model built by Mr. Raymond T. Stout in 1962. It's a model of a 1901 Huber Traction engine, a steam-powered tractor that could be used to haul a load, or power machinery by attaching a belt to the engine's flywheel. #BatteriesNotIncluded #Nostalgia #VintageToys #Vrooom #1960svintage #Steampunk

thehomeschoolstore : That's amazing!
americanantiquarian : Was this a salesman's sample of the full-sized tractor? Not a toy, really?
amhistorymuseum : @americanantiquarian Will double check with our curator! :)
leighleigh5000 : Did you add wood or coal to make the steam? Being so small, I wonder how far it went? Actually how small is it?
