“Black tenants in Harlem during the 1920s and... | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Black tenants in Harlem during the 1920s and 1930s faced discriminatory rental rates. That, along with the generally lower salaries for black workers, created a situation in which many people were short of rent money.” How did these tenants cope? By sending out these invitations and charging for parties that would help them make rent.

This would not pass the CRAP test because it doesn't come from a reliable source. The Tumblr website is a public website where users create their own pages. But the pictures that this site has are legitimate, and show truth behind the page.

Vintage Black Olga Lingerie Nightgown with Black Lace HUGE Sweep Style #92280 Size L 16

Vintage Black Olga Lingerie Nightgown with Black Lace HUGE Sweep Style #92280 Size L 16 | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Olga earned a number of design patents for her lingerie -- she's most known for an elegant sex appeal which teases the viewer as well as the wearer. And this vintage nightgown is proof of it. The nylon stretches, and the pieces are put together to rather caress and hold your breasts in place... *dreamy sighs* And then there's that luxurious swirl of nylon falling from your hips and sliding around your legs... At least a 150 inch sweep!

(Forgive me if you already know the delights of Olga lingerie -- I know I am preaching to the choir! But Olga nightgowns are one of the most exquisite pleasures on the planet!)

Black floral paisley scalloped lace frames the opening at the bodice and meets in a medallion of sorts in the middle -- drawing in the eyes as well as your waist. Just a work of lingerie art!

The Great American Thermos Hoard.

The Great American Thermos Hoard. | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The reason that this caught my eye and the reason I am so enthralled by this collection (any of my close friends who know me and have been to my apartment know), has to do with the fact that I have collected thermoses on and off since I was in college. Granted I don’t have a 5000 square foot loft (oh to live in Cleveland), but I do have a bunch of these old things around all over the place. The thing is, I see the vacuum bottle as a very symbolic Americana treasure. The thermos is undoubtedly linked to workwear and America’s blue-collar roots.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

The photos are amazing!
