A Tribute to an Original Recycler

This was side #1 of Big Rod's Garage.  In a day and a half we pulled out 3,800 pounds of scrap metal and about 7 cans of garbage.  Some of the garbage I did the first half day while I was alone--and I learned over the next day and a half working with my friend Eve that much of it wasn't garbage at all but things that Rod had saved to make or repair something.  Big Rod was definitely a child of the Depression--he saved EVERYTHING.

So, what is left is what the American Picker's guys would call Rusty Gold!  Here is a smattering of what has someone!
