Very cool. Past relics are great because it's a lasting impression of that era's state of mind. Just the other day, I was watching a movie that was the espionage thriller of the day called "The House On 92nd street" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0037795/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1) and thought about how their technology could be seen as late nineteenth century, to today's standards. The way I looked at it, it was more than just pointing out the fact that it was old, but more about the people and the mindset of that era.
