Liberty Tool

(Another field trip from my first week in Maine.) Ok, how to describe Liberty Tool? Think of a stereotypical mothers purse. You know the example of which I speak, the purse that if emptied would fill a small room. The purse that defies all the laws of physics and space by the immensity and diversity of things that it contains. (Kind of like the Genie's lamp. "PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS! Itty-bitty living space!") With that image in your head imagine what it might look like if those mothers were allowed to unleash this mystical power upon a three story classic New England style house. The shear quantity and diversity of random stuff is absolutely mind boggling. My pictures are a little limited because the battery died on my camera, unbeknownst to me, and unless I was shooting at a shutter speed of at least 1 second than the shutter released at its highest speed and the negative turned out blank.

If you don't believe my description of the randomness of inventory and organization inherent at Liberty Tool I have included a simple filing cabinet to demonstrate my point. (You may need to enlarge by clicking on the picture to fully appreciate the non-exaggerated magnitude in the chaos of which I speak.)

I can't decide which label I like more: LRT (little rusty things), Fig Newtons, Nuclear Waste, or that they actually have a file labeled 'Miscellaneous'.
