The Museum of American History has loads of memorabilia:
:: Helen Keller's Watch ::
:: Dorothy's Ruby, Red Slippers from The Wizard of Oz ::
:: R2D2 ::
but here are some of my favorites...
|late 1700's WOMAN'S POCKET ~ used to carry her needle, thread, thimble & keys|
|FLUTING IRON ~ made ironing pleats & tucks easier|
|Lace making BOBBINS on a pillow|
