If you visit the Vienna Technical Museum, ascend to the top floor of the public space (the library is on the very top floor) and look behind the wall in the opposite corner to the stairs, you will see a display of postal, pneumatic, and telegraphic items. One side is shown here; the other is very difficult to photograph because of background clutter. In the pictures here, the confusing background of other exhibits, reflections, views through windows and so on have been greyed out.
The pictures are presented as vertical strips, of (a) items associated with the pneumatic post (b) extensive views of the Crespin Apparatus (c) some postal exhibits (d) some telegraph exhibits. Click each picture below and the page will open in a separate window; close it when done.
