The most incredible, the first to be revealed by the UK’s National Museum of Scotland, is a tiny, glass-encased door which is about the size of a pea.
The door was built by a local engineer in the 18th century in Glasgow, and has never been seen by the public.
The story of how it came to be is a fascinating one, and a testament to the Scottish’s remarkable resilience.
It began in 1793 when a Scottish engineer, William Smith, was working on the Edinburgh &Wyndham Railway line when he came across a glass door he recognised as a similar one in another part of the world.
He went back to Edinburgh to see what he could find, and discovered that the door was actually made in Glasgow.
This led to a long-running rivalry between the two cities, with Glasgow claiming it was the first door in Scotland.
This rivalry continued into the 20th century, and when Smith died in 1926, the door ended up in the museum, along with the rest of his tools and equipment.
It was a sad day for the museum when it was announced that it had been lost to the public in 2016, and its whereabouts were unknown until recently.
The museum has managed to find the door, though, by searching the building for any artefacts that might be of use.
The glass doors in this collection, which are about the same size as a peal, are all glass doors, and all of them have the same pattern of holes drilled into them.
The holes allow light to pass through the glass without breaking the glass, and the holes have also been marked with the date of construction.
There is a story behind each of these holes.
The first one dates back to 1810 when the glass doors were first installed, and was used by an engineer named William Smith in a series of railway works that were completed between 1816 and 1821.
The next hole dates back almost to 1824, when Smith made a further series of repairs to the railway tracks to help the rails glide more easily.
These repairs, which were carried out by the engineer in his sleep, were made on the backs of the iron wheels.
The last hole dates from 1828 and was made to mark the location of the end of a railway line.
It’s important to note that the holes are all exactly the same, as there are two different shapes to them, one with an oval shape, and one with a round shape.
The circular hole is the one that dates from the 1824 period, and is the only one which was ever found.
The other holes are not as well preserved, and have been found to be broken off at the end.
The hole that dates back from 1842 is also the only hole that has been found.
All the holes in this group are rectangular in shape, as they have a diameter of one metre, and each has two holes drilled through the outer side of it, making it possible to see through the entire outer part of it.
The size of each hole varies, and they are very clearly marked with a date, but as you can see from the diagram below, the holes themselves are made of a single piece of iron, rather than a series that are all of different shapes.
The earliest hole in the collection dates back about 1890, when a man named Charles Clark visited the museum in Glasgow to take photographs of the glass door and the rest that he had collected.
Clark was fascinated by the shape of the hole, and it seems that he recognised the shape from the way the hole looked in his memory.
Clark had visited the Scottish National Museum in Glasgow about a year earlier, and noticed that the glass had the same shape, which was why he called it the “Clark-hole”.
It’s been suggested that this was due to the fact that Clark had been to Glasgow, so he recognised it from his previous visit, and thought it was a very interesting hole to photograph.
Clark went on to take several photographs of other glass doors he had found in Scotland, and in 1895 he wrote to the museum asking for a photograph of the first glass door in the gallery, which had a date of 1894.
He also asked for a book with the photograph, and this was eventually given to the British Museum.
Clark’s photograph is a bit of a surprise to many people.
The book he asked for had already been published in 1896 in The Illustrated Scotsman, and there was no record of the photograph being made.
The photograph was taken in 1896, but it is not known whether it was taken when the book was published or if it was after.
It has been suggested by a number of people that Clark was simply trying to show that Scotland had a glass culture that lasted well into the 19th century.
In any case, the photograph was not released to the general public until the 2023 edition of The Illustrated Scot was published.
