The (relative) joys of archiving

One of the (admittedly few) cool things about my job is that I get to be in places that very few people get to see. Admittedly, these are often dusty, dirty, poorly lit and mold-infested. Still.

This used to be a penthouse apartment, and supposedly it was one of Joseph Kennedy’s (JFK’s father) lairs where he would entertain his lady friends. Don’t know if it’s true, but it’s a good story, although I could have done without the mental images.

Modern conveniences!
