Edmund Scientific Periscope

Ask any former visitor what they remember most about the Edmund Scientific Co. factory store in Barrington, New Jersey, and they'll often say "the periscope". This is the spot on the floor where that fond memory once stood. I looked through this myself back in the late 1960's -- and right on through adulthood until they closed. I remember stepping up on the foot plate, and swinging it around for a panoramic tour of the rooftops of Barrington. For popular science enthusiasts, there was no place on Earth like Edmund.
