Old and new energy technology

Oil well and wind turbines in fields by Highway 3. The crane was not moving, and looks quite old, so perhaps it's dry. This part of Ontario is about 50km from the first commercial oil well in the world, in Oil Springs, Ontario..

Passionfruit!

 Passionflower
turns into Passion fruit - bit of a surprise - first time it's happened - this one's label said the fruit was inedible, but I'll see.

Grandfather clock 8 track stereo and turntable!

This was in a Value Village shop - sorry, it's long gone now! Tempus Fugit!

An ordinary 70s version of a grandfather clock? Hardly!

 Inside was a state of the art home entertainment centre, with 8 track and...
...a turntable!
label on back - looks like it was assembled in Canada, I'd guess for a department store like Eaton's or Sears. 4D sound AM FM Stereo Receiver, 8-track and turntable Morse Electro Products Corps, made the brand Electrophonic, seems to have had a plant in Brooklyn, NY. in the 1960s and 70s. 4D Sound System just meant it could be switched to run a second pair of speakers, not quadrophonic sound
