Some of the boxes contain equipment, but most are empty. All boxes for all equipment are always saved. For equipment that my dad sold and installed at the customers residence, the boxes would remain at our home if the customer did not want to retain them, and most would end up here in our basement.
Some loose equipment is also visible. At the bottom left is an old belt drive turntable with the belt driving the outer rim of the platter. Somewhere in this mess is an old Thorens turntable with a "robot arm" that would play a stack of records with greater care than the old, common "changers" that would drop the records from a stack. Another old unit that flipped the platter in order to play both sides of the record had a vaccuum-driven system that I was never able to successfully repair. Dealer promotional materials, such as an old black-and-white "flip book" that demonstrated the operation of the Thorens changer are also abundant throughout the house.
The water heater and HVAC system are on the right in this photo. The air handler for the air conditioning system is way in the back of the room, pretty much inaccessible for service. Nothing in the house can really be called "accessible".

The metal shelving throughout the basement was installed by my father with my help when I was young, at great difficulty and danger. It serves dual purpose now, for placement of items and to hold up the stacks of overflow once the shelves become full.
