Welcome to the Mellow 60s Museum tour! M60 Home

The tour has been temporarily amended with updated information about the museum. New photos are being taken and will be uploaded as soon as possible.

This photo shows the entry wall display. On three metal storage cabinets, Auburn rubber fire trucks, a large diecast antique fire engine, and several small diecast fire trucks can be seen. On a shelf above are examples of each of the Hubley cast metal Model A Fords with cast metal figures. Above them is a shelf of diecast Cadillacs in various sizes, and above that a plastic M&M's roadster, a Buddly L panel truck, and some stamped metal O gauge railroad toys. There also is a vintage wall-hung pay phone with a photo of my mother, the actress Barbara Payton. It is a sculpture I title You Could Have Called. In front of it is a tall, very skinny Santa Claus carrying several diecast cars. In the foreground, on the other side of the entryway and atop a display case is seen a wooden gas pump and a Brumm plastic roadster.

On entering, the wall above is to your left. It is adjacent to the garage door and contains Hubleys, fire apparatus and family photos, and various diecast vehicles. One passes between that wall and a glass display case, which has the gas pump and the yellow Brum roadster atop it.

The picture above shows the backside of the small case just inside the door. To the left of it is a 4' case with part of the typewriter collection. The photo below is of the door-side case and its contents.

With this photo, we start up the north wall (below), the wall where the oddball in charge surfs the web, writes, and generally enjoys looking out the windows. A lot. Most of the computer gear has gone now, replaced by new display cases filled with typewriters. All this will be seen in the updated tour soon.

This photo shows that space is always at a premium in the museum. Vintage typing tables, below, made for great displays, but now they are gone, replaced by rolling racks, which replaced the plastic shelves. This Ford is gone, too, replaced by a 1929 Ford Fordor.

Today, all seen below has changed or gone. In its place is a single workstand with adjacent file cabinet on one side and four-shelf unit. The single computer, a very small box, a printer and a scanner, and a wall-mounted monitor comprise the museum's computing tools. The displays, toys, Mexican movie posters and airplanes remain.

Not much serious goes on within our museum. No bone
					scraping, no carbon dating. No painting repairs. But the old man manages to keep busy and to have a lot of fun, as one might guess from the photo above.

Where these counter tops were when this photo was taken, now live several glass display cases and a rack of Olympias and Olivettis. Most of the older Remington portables are shown here, but many more have been added and will be viewable on the website soon.

This photo is a view along the west wall over toward the south
					wall. The photographs have been replaced with wall-mounted display cases for the rubber toy vehicles collection. All the typing tables, and clutter are gone today.

Above is a closer view of the south wall. There are two glass cases of toy typers and the one of vintage Remington, Corona, and Royal portables. In the background is a rack that holds plastic toys and various typewriters.

In this photo, hundreds of Hotwheels, Johnny Lightning, Matchbox are
					scattered across the top of a display case. I have almost 2000 of these and have yet to figure out how
					to display them. They have been put into storage for now.

Hotwheels, Johnny Lightning, Matchbox -- I have almost 2000 of these and have yet to figure out how to display them. They have been put into storage for now.

This is is a closer view of the rolling, plastic display rack for most
				of the plastic cars and trucks, and various typewriters. The one on the floor, by the way, is an example of the first IBM Electric.On the floor are Doggie toys. My two miniature Schnauzers stay out here with me most of the time. There are four rolling racks of typewriters now, and the three display cases.

Above, looking north from the east wall. A rotating rack held hobby
				publications. Now, they are in magazine boxes on a shelf rack with typewriters. There are four rolling
				racks of typewriters where the glass cases are. The cases have been moved and are full now. In their place are four tall rolling wire racks with the older, larger typewriters.
