the world of science




Several months ago I hauled home MANY boxes of odds and ends that had been stuffed in the back of a closet at my parent's house. Slowly but surely I am making my way through the rubble and just recently rediscovered a 1958 copy of The World of Science. To be honest I have no idea what the book says (i.e. how much is outdated, informative, and/or laughable) because I was immediately taken in by the photographs and graphics. I especially like the family photo directly above; that kid on the far left has a sort of "special" expression. You can see a few more of the scanned images here.
