I had a couple visitors to my place a week ago for the first time...of course walking in to my collection is a bit overwhelming to most, but I give the "tour" and talk about items of interest. On the dining room table are 3 globes, one of which is a round "VISIBLE GASOLINE" ball globe. I think it was a bit of a realization for me as well when I shared with them that the globe was around 100 years old. It's a testament to our hobby how much stuff is around that is a century old or older.....
