The 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago was dismantled and put away (or destroyed) after the fair…except for a few pieces which have turned up in storage!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art not only has a collection of historical musical instruments, they have a weblog about the holdings.

Here’s a skeleton alarm clock from the 1850s. Oh, those wacky Victorians.
