Picking up where we left off, this extensive set of tools belonged to one man. James Anthony immigrated from England around 1910 and worked on the rebuilding of Centre Block after the Parliament Hill fire of 1916.
More tools, of a bigger scale, up above.
And then there are sewing instruments.
I moved into a section of the museum concerning itself with energy- both uses and sources.
Here we have a fully disassembled Smart car.
Mining is part of the story here, with equipment displayed.
Some of that equipment is high tech, as satellites are used in a different way in the mining industry.
This item is a mapper, generating a three dimensional map of a mine to be used in computer models. I've also seen this used to create virtual maps of caves.
An interactive set nearby allows you to take a spin through a virtual mine, with each dot of light representing a single scan from the mapper. It creates an otherworldly effect as you use the control stick to navigate your way through one of four different scanned mines.
