Thomas With Indian-head pennies


#1

Just a doodle for a Sunday morning. I call it Thomas.


#2

In reality is there mirrored text on these blocks? :wink:
Nice model.


#3

Good eye, sir. And thank you.

I’m still waiting for someone to tell me why I call it Thomas. :wink: Surely someone will know.


#4

Midgley?


#5

Nope.


#6

The closest I get is that it’s unbelievable what one can lift with these blocks, even Thomas can’t/couldn’t believe it. But nah, that’s not it either, I guess.


#7

No. That’s not it, either.


#8

Don’t tell me that I’m right…

Ok, so you didn’t.


#9

OK. I won’t. :smiley:


#10

I looked at sailing wooden blocks but don’t have a clue whatsoever! When will we know?


#11

I’ll give it a little time. Maybe a sailor will chime in.


#12

I also thought of Thomas who came to India as a carpenter.
Last guess would be Jefferson, but I don’ t see the connection with the pulley…


#13

Yeah right, Thomas Cook.


#14

Nope. Not Thomas Cook.

Nor Thomas Jefferson.


#15

Eakins


#16

Ah! Now things become even more confused


#17

Ewbank ?


#18

Hamm

#19

Not Eakins, Not Ewbank. Not Hamm. Good tries, though.


#20

The answer is a person?
