Thermo-Scope Temperature Reader
Original Thermo-Scope akin to a modern-day thermometer
An original, round Thermo-Scope used at the Ira C. Anderson Funeral Home (established in 1920) in Kearney, Nebraska (which is now the Horner, Lieske, McBride, & Kuhl Funeral Home in Kearney located at the intersection of 25th St. and Avenue A. Thermoscopes were used before the modern thermometer and may have been first discovered by Galileo Galilei. However, the artifact suggests that Thermo-Scope was a company because of the tagline "Better than a Thermometer."
