cash register antique-Gladtobeout Morguefile

“High up in the Sierra at the end of a twisty mountain road, this tiny town is going to have a 100th birthday party Saturday for its oldest and most revered resident: a huge, brass cash register.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

The birthday gal — and it is a gal, its owner insists — will be working, like it always is. It’s been whirring up totals and clattering open its drawers dependably at Young’s Market on Main Street since the day it was made and installed in 1914.
