    lurking. I recently did a card that featured the Brannock Device. That is the tool used to measure your foot and determine shoe size. If I can come up with a few more ideas I'll join.

    LOVE your Brannock Device Card, Pancake Machine.
    I hope you can think of some additional items and decide to sign up for the swap.

    1923 -- "Modern" Bulldozer Invented
    Wooden blade "Bulldozers", powered by mules, horses, oxen, or "bulls", have been around as long as there have been farmers. The wooden blade, animal and human-powered tool, was used to move dirt and level ground for planting fields and building homes.

    The "Modern" bulldozer, as we now think of it, is credited as invented by James Cummings and J. Earl McLeod in Morrowville, Kansas in 1923. They created a large, dirt-pushing blade that could attach to the front of a tractor.

    As with all new inventions, Benjamin Holt needed to point out that tractors with endless chain treads were invented by himself, Benjamin Holt in 1904. These tractors were "crawlers" rather than dirt dosers, but were wonderful because they were less likely to sink in loose soil or sand.

    In an effort to gain public acknowledgment of his invention, Holt had a photographer taking pictures.
    The photographer, while photographing the new steam dirt-push-er, thought the movement of the endless chain tread for the steam traction engine looked like a caterpillar, so when Benjamin Holt heard this, he re-named his company to The Holt Manufacturing Company to produce tractors with treads for farming and agriculture. These vehicles were eventually nicknamed "caterpillars", and he renamed his company, again, to The Holt Caterpillar Company in 1910.

    Then, there are the bull-doses of medicine, and the bulldozer hammer......

    Sounds great!
    I remember Sears had the Brannock Deice for a while, but they have also been out of business for a while.

    Anyone recognize this invention of the 1920's?

    I'm in. Please add me.

    My Brannock Device card is traded, but it is one of those tools you don't see anymore. I've noticed more carpets with different sizes mapped out on them when the kids were little.

    2 more from me.

    The flowchart was invented in 1921. Then the other is the 3 way traffic light. There were a number created around the same time, but I'll go with the local Ohio fellow, Garrett Morgan.

    If you are having difficulty between "PEOPLE" of the 1920's and "DISCOVERIES" of the 1920's, don't worry.

    We know that Lord Carnarvon discovered Tutankhamun's Tomb, so I will accept an ATC based on Lord Carnarvon in the "PEOPLE" of the 1920's, as long as the ATC has Lord Carnarvon as the main focus.

    But I will also accept the "DISCOVERY" of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Lord Carnarvon, in the "INVENTIONS/DISCOVERIES" Swap. Again, please assure that the focus of any ATC for this swap has a focus on King Tut, his golden mask, the discovery of his tomb, etc.

    So do what you wish or make one card for each swap.
