Museum CD Free!

GONE TO A NEW HOME
A few years ago, I found myself in Fabriano, Italy. It’s a town known for hundreds of years for paper making. While headed to lunch, I saw a sign for “Working Bicycle Museum”. Well, who doesn’t like a bike that works? But the subject of the museum is not functionality of a bike but rather bikes with a specific function. The museum housed a collection of bikes that were used by tradespeople provide services to rural Italy. From the blacksmith to the knife grinder to a person who showed movies, bikes from all these people were in the exhibit.
I got a tour of the museum from the most enthusiastic tour guide I could ever want to meet who closed his bakery down the street to give me a tour. The least I could do is buy his photo CD when I was done.
But sadly, I no longer have a computer that reads CDs. So I offer up, free of charge, the CD of a most interesting museum. All I ask is that you pass this CD on to someone else when you are done. And if you ever find yourself in Fabriano, well, you know where you need to visit.
PM me with your address and I will put the CD in the mail. Heck, I’ll ship anywhere.

I happen to have a computer with CD capability. And as director of a vintage bike ride, I feel it my duty to research vintage bikes of all kinds - especially of the proletariat. PM incoming.

A educator should have this educational item.

And why shouldn’t I post a travel photo of Fabriano, since Dave will be traveling literally? . All towns should have parking lot views like this...
