The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair

The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"The future naval officers, who live within these walls, will find in the career of the man whose life we this day celebrate, not merely a subject for admiration and respect, but an object lesson to be taken into their innermost hearts. . . . Every officer . . . should feel in each fiber of his being an eager desire to emulate the energy, the professional capacity, the indomitable determination and dauntless scorn of death which marked John Paul Jones above all his fellows.”

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.

...The documents include the names of artists – many well known – with prices or values for some works, and by reference to the largely unpublished inventory of his estate, give some indication of which works in the documents Biringucci acquired and how his taste conformed to the prevailing trends of the period.

No room for archaeology archive in 27% of museums

No room for archaeology archive in 27% of museums | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

A survey by the Society of Museum Archaeologists (SMA) has exposed a lack of storage space and curatorial expertise in English museums dealing with archaeological archives.

The survey of 134 museums found that 36 could not accept archaeological archives because of lack of space.

It also revealed that museums in 47 local authorities were no longer collecting, while 70% of museums had no specialist archaeology curator.

SMA chairwoman Gail Boyle said: “Many of the museums that responded are local authority museums that have no statutory funding, so they are often targeted [for cuts]. It has become prevalent over time and is getting worse.

“Archaeological field units are having to store their work, as there is nowhere for them to deposit it.

Sad, but not a surprise. I've watched 'Museum Secrets' and see them pull stuff out of storage bins and talk about things found, again.

Without the archives, what value are the 'finds' to which they are linked?  Very sad.

Hot On The Historical Ephemera Trail... In The National Enquirer?

Hot On The Historical Ephemera Trail... In The National Enquirer? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The women born between 1905 and 1909 were the same young girls who grew up during the years of the women’s suffrage movement in the US. They would have seen the struggle, heard the talk, and knew they could have greater freedom of choice in living their lives. They too would see, if not quite be, part of the flapper movement. Activism and parenting being almost completely at odds with one another, some may have opted not to have children — and at this time, birth control, thanks to Margaret Sanger, was becoming a realistic option.

 

And, just as these young women were perhaps thinking of starting a family…

 

Along comes The Great Depression — the one of that started about 1929, not the one some say we are approaching now — and the birthrate fell about one-tenth globally from the rate during the “prosperous” 1920′s. In America, the birth rate dropped below the replacement level for the first time in history.

So I set out to find more about Mr. Gladwell, and why the name Beechman was on his awning but not his painted window sign.

No spring training, cuts, mid-season call-ups, playoffs or championships are components of collecting military baseball. Fortunately trades and wins (and sadly, losses) come occur between the lines, on the field of play.

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The letters nagged at me like a persistent hint from the past. I’d first encountered them among my father’s papers as I researched my book, The Man Who Thought Like a Ship. They pertained to a ship model he’d built in the 1950s of an ancient Egyptian vessel. The model left home before I was born, and everyone, my father included, assumed it had been discarded long ago. I’d only ever seen it in pictures.

The watermelon prices are excellent. I'd take a dozen. As for the English, how many men online have you had send you something equally bad or worse? I don't ask them what colour they are, I just don't answer.
Laura Brown's comment, February 7, 2013 10:39 AM
The bigger issue about racism isn't this card it's all the other cards which show white people exclusively. I feel bad for multicultural families who would like to have Valentines to send with something other than the typical white kids. You can't change the vintage Valentines but if you look in stores right now... where are the other cultures represented? All I see are cartoons, movies and etc being promoted. I don't see any Valentines I'd actually think were meant for a kid to take to school and distribute to his or her classroom.

MediaPost Publications The Apple Parallel Steve Jobs -Apple and Edwin Land Polaroid | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The Apple Parallel - 10/10/2012... by Barbara Lippert

 

"He was a college dropout, obsessed with product design and patenting pocket inventions. A visionary and perfectionist with sophisticated tastes, he lived to invent covetable products that would not only change the world, but were also beautiful to look at and easy to use. Thus, he built a tiny garage start-up into an international corporate giant that managed to revolutionize the art world and pop culture and still maintain a stock price in the stratosphere. At annual stockholder meetings, the focus was solely on him: he personally demonstrated the brand’s latest innovations on a dramatically lit stage, and the combination was magic. Oh, and he also ran great ads.

A eulogy for Steve Jobs on the first anniversary of his death?

Nope. Actually, I’m describing the larger-than-life inventor/entrepreneur Edwin Land (1910-1991), founder of Polaroid, who happened to be Steve Jobs’ hero, and on whom Jobs modeled much of his role at Apple..."
