His name was… Albert (Tapper) Torney.

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. 

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 —-
