Yes, I have a thing for numbers.
This window of a scale and cash register shop on the Bowery near Broome St stopped me in my tracks.
Every kind of scale and cash register know to man kind is probably stacked and packed inside. What a treasure trove - from the ornate old cash register (are they made from cast iron?), to the no nonsense sans serif accuracy of the numbers on the scales. And the metals - brass, chrome and the bright red painted scale in the front.
And a toaster thrown in on the lower right hand corner. Got to diversify, I guess.
A wonderful collection.
