JHS visits The New England Wireless & Steam Museum Aug 2018

The JHS members-only trip to The New England Wireless and Steam Museum was enjoyed by four members.  From 17 foot high fly wheels to the history of Marconi we greatly appreciated the the knowledgeable guides that explained the mysteries presented in this museum.  Only open three days a summer we enjoyed being exposed to many things we had never seen before.

We followed up the visit with lunch at Jitters, a diner in East Greenwich which serves Johnny Cakes.  I should have taken a picture of my johnny cake eggs benedict.  It was superb.
