Uphill Both Ways
Volume 9 - Boston 1956
More ham. Arnie is shaking dad’s hands in congratulations for what they have done. They are now ready to attack the rest of the skeleton that has been neglected until the skull was in place.
This photo shows how much had been done on the rest of the skull up to that time, mostly by Dave but also by Arnie. Dad focused on the skull since it required so much welding. You see the steel rod that has been shaped and welded into the foramen magnum of the skull - the hole the spinal cord sticks out of, in you, too. A cardboard vertebrae is stuck on the “spinal cord” above the coracoids as Dave and Arnie examine the pectoral girdle. They were now ready to assemble the vertebrae.
