Gordon Earl Adams built a time machine in the late 1920s

In the late 1920s, Gordon Earl Adams, an engineer and scientist, attempted to build a time machine. The photos are the evidence of his labor and lunacy, and it’s hard not to have fun imagining Adams as a sort of fin-de-siecle Doc Brown. Found this in the latest Archive of Modern Conflict. Fittingly, the only other thing that comes up in Google under ‘Gordon Earl Adams’ is a design for a perpetual motion machine.
