|Public Health Scrapbook|
We received two scrapbooks as part of the deal as well. These scrapbooks mainly contain newspaper clippings related to public health initiatives and issues in Multnomah County. While photographing this I noticed one of the articles, let's check it out in closer detail:
Dear readers, you know the faucet handles that are handle-like, long and narrow with an upturned end? I had always figured that was simply to make grasping the handle easier. Did you know that it was a public health measure? According to this article, those handles, as opposed to the knob styled ones, were developed so that folks could turn the water on and off using their wrists or inner forearm. And here I had thought they were because the knob ones could be hard to turn with wet hands! You learn something new everyday.
Till next week when I have something "hot" to show you!
