Card Catalog

An update on the art cabinet saga... I have been looking for a flat art file or card catalog and *finally* found a great one on Craigslist in Ann Arbor.  It was fun to meet the couple and hear about how they came across the piece at a University of Michigan auction in the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library. They have seven kids(!!!) and the older ones helped us load some of the drawers into our truck, how cute. It was easier to move the card catalog without all the drawers inside, but removing them took some time since there are 72!

Don't you love the hardware? All of the drawers have the original cards too. I have a section of the f's and I think there were 108 files in the collection.
