Right in the heart of downtown Buffalo lies a gem of a museum that has a great collection of cars and memorabilia, including a full scale reconstruction of a gas station designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

This thread will contain some photographs taken by me during a visit a few months ago, using a Nikon D7000 and 18-300 lens.

The museum consists of three large halls, with the entrance off to the side of the first hall. Moving to the right, one comes across several cases full of early memorabilia.

Anything and just about everything from the early days of American motoring is on display, taking plenty of time to appreciate in detail.

The early style gasoline pumps are fun to observe, with calibrated glass displays showing exactly what was being dispensed. May be these units should be brought back?

In the central hall are many later model cars, but my favorite display here was the mechanical traffic control sign.
