Saturday Snapshot– Waterloo Region Museum

November 19, 2011 at 9:22 pm 15 comments

On the inside of the museum looking out through a floor-to-ceiling window. See how the track goes straight through? The museum is built right over the old rail line, but the steam engine doesn’t run anymore.

A wheel called Hazel, built in 1908 to provide steam power to local manufacturing.

An original Conestoga wagon

For more on the museum, check back in a few days.

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. At Home With Books.

    That’s cool! I never would have guessed that there was a window there in the first photo.

    When I saw it the first time, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Had to share that one.

      There were so many people attending that day, that we couldn’t see everything. We’ll go again and see things we missed.

    Very cool! I, too, love museums…seeing/learning new things and being taken back in time. It’s all good. One other thing I like about museums, is that it’s generally quiet. Weird, I know, but I really like quiet.

    Sorry I’m a little late in commenting. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment.

      No problem at all. I’m glad you stopped by and commented. šŸ™‚

      This museum was anything but quiet with all the people who were there, but I think it will be quiet at other times. I like quiet too.
