The MO Archives | Herstory | Scoop.it

The Mass Observation project was a government led project that aimed to record everyday life in Britain using around 500 volunteer ‘observers’ who either kept diaries or replied to open-ended questionnaires. The project kicked off in August 1939 when Mass Observation invited members of the public to record and send them a day to day account of their lives in the form of a diary.

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star | Herstory | Scoop.it

The reason these glasses are so common are that many of them survived for the very same reason of needing to be hidden. Tucked away under the bar, in the booze cabinet, and other places children, in-laws, nosy neighbors, and even spouses were expected not to peer, just saved the life of the glasses. They remained unscathed, hidden in dusty places until the now-adult children discover them as part of the estate. (Of course, the true iconic bachelor, however real or unreal he may be, he may have used the glasses to the point of wearing the decals off them… If we can believe the legends of “the bachelor life”.
