Mystery History

Where are we? And what's happening?

The first person to guess correctly will win lunch with me -- I'll buy yours and you'll buy mine.

Remember, leave your brief guess as a comment on this blog post but don't try to give the entire back story (that's my job).

I'll have the full scoop on Thursday.


  1. It looks like some people at JPL designing a mock-up of a space capsule, I'm thinking Mercury. Ron Rosen

  2. A theater prop for the Pasadena Playhouse - but then again these guys in their shirts and ties don't exactly scream bohemia eccentricity. The older gents eyebrows are more Cal Tech then Bohtech.

  3. Definitely plywood capsule mock-up. But the real story is Ricky Nelson penning of a rough draft of the song "Rocket Man" that Elton John would ultimately pilfer.

  4. You guys are so smart! Surely Ron and Davis are right. I was going to say piano.

  5. A tape measure! so dazzlingly low tech.

  6. Looked like a piano to me at first, until I saw a man sitting in it! Ron Rosen
