Construction of a railroad engine. Painting wheels of locomotive

This photograph shows how the two halves of a trailer house, delivered individually, are assembled by simply rolling them together on previously prepared foundations which consist of a few posts driven into the ground connected by planks upon which the house halves roll by means of small wooden wheels. Each half is light enough to be towed behind a 3/4 ton truck or passenger car. They come fully equipped with all essential furniture and equipment, either built-in or stored inside during transport. They are connected to each other by a few bolts, while the roof sections meet in ridges over which a common cap is laid. The whole operation may take between one and three hours, including connection to previously prepared utilities. The section or halves measure 26' x 7'9," thus permitting highway transportation without special permits. Any number of sections can be combined. Two- and three-bedroom houses. Recreation buildings, bath houses, and even very large barracks, have been constructed by TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) on the same general plans but using more sections

An old macaroni box filled with an arrangement of wheels, rubber bands, meat skewers and staples which was the forerunner of the modern key-driven, multiple-order calculating machine, was presented to the Smithsonian Institution today. The scarred old box was designed and constructed by Dorr E. Felt, young Chicago mechanic, 52 years ago when he first started in to solve the problem of what is now the modern calculating machine. Mrs. Raymond J. Koch, (right) oldest daughter of the late inventor, is shown making the prsentation to Dr. Charles G. Abbot, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. In the center is Raymond J. Koch, 3/31/1937
