Here's a picture of something that was donated to the thrift stores run by my wife. Does anyone have any idea what it is? It's got six double rolls, each wound with paper on which is printed three numbers. It's 9 inches tall and 12 inches long. On the top of it is stamped "Patented Feb 2. 1897."
1897! Now, c'mon. You guys are smart. What is this thing?
Tell me/guess here.
