Baby Scale old

A baby scale–such a simple item.  It was the old fashioned kind – a drab concave holder on a spring connected to a scale with a needle that spun to the correct number of pounds and ounces–nothing fancy.  We found it in our house in June 2000 when we moved in.  The previous owner was a doctor.

We had no baby.  Our boys were in high school.  But we kept the baby scale, thinking it was an interesting antique that brought back memories of our own childhoods.
