Nice Library, how did you find that?
Some of those Stanley tools I still have.

Lucked into it.

The library is part of Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free & Borrowable Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine which has millions of books, movies, audios, etc. It's a great site to get lost in. I happened upon the building library just a few days ago.
