The 91st Academy Awards finally arrive this Sunday, and the news cycle surrounding the awards seems to have barely been about the nominees themselves. Yes, “Bohemian Rhapsody” has dealt with a sex abuse scandal involving its credited director, “Green Book” has been accused of twisting its story to fit a particular narrative, and the Best Picture race feels all over the place, but much of the Oscar talk over the last two months has been about the ceremony and not the purpose of the ceremony. What will the show look like without a host? How long will it actually last now that categories have been cut and re-added? What will the musical performances look like? How will the show transition between presentations?
When traveling in Jacksonville we may often see, or hear, the Union Pacific Railroad traversing our community. Our community is located here because of the railroads that first came through here in 1872. While we don’t have the space to display a complete railroad engine, we do have the first thing everyone would see as the train came into town, or looked into a tunnel as it was coming through, the engine’s headlight. The museum’s headlight was manufactured by the Pyle National Headlamp Company. The brass label affixed to the headlight has a Design Patent date of May, 1909. Since there is no Mechanical Patent that was listed on later models, and since the first unit of this design was not installed until 1913, we believe our head lamp is among the first produced.
