OLD CANS!



He used to go to all the public functions...
especially the picture theaters.
And he always carried a sugar bag to collect 
empty bottles and cans.

His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney.
Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids
would tease and hassle him.
Then it was discovered that he sold the 
empty bottles but only some of the cans.

After he died in 1998 (aged 86) his large collection
of model cars made from aluminum cans was
discovered.

This goes to prove..."you shouldn't judge a book by
its cover" - or a sculptor by his sugar bag.

Some of his AMAZING! collection ----
