Trivia time! We’ve been digging through artifacts at the Elliott Museum for our General Store exhibit. This 1914 national cash register is now a part of the updated display. Can you guess how much it cost in 1914?

I am going to guess it was originally purchased for $5 or maybe $10. Please let me know the original cost, thank you 😊

Here of a similar one that was for sale online, sold for $995, the date on the inside label has 1933.

The 1930 Lincoln Brougham is one of the most interesting cars in the museum’s collection. Its V8 engine was designed by Lincoln founder Henry Leland. He modeled it after the Liberty airplane engine, which he designed for the government during WWI. This 7-person town car was not cheap, costing $7,000 compared to a new Ford, which went for about $500.  If you look closely, you can see a silver plated greyhound on the radiator, representing grace, speed, and stamina.
