to keep a car from flipping over?
I had never thought about this question until I visited The Riverside Museum, Glasgow’s Museum of Transport and Travel.
This surprisingly engaging museum was designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid. The cars and trains (and bicycles, motorcycles, etc.) were fascinating not only in their historic value but as objects of art.
But I really laughed when I saw this little car:
I don’t know how many books it actually took to keep the car from flipping over, but I love the idea that one needed to drive with one’s library for safety reasons!
