    The designs on these (very) old calling cards are gorgeous! I love the thought of a time when people would come see you, and leave cards to say they came by if you weren’t there, or to invite you to parties, or better yet, make romantic advances! Maybe sometime, somehow, calling cards will come back… (…) Read more »

    I am obsessed by the graphics on these antique German notgeld, or emergency money. Notgeld was printed by small municipalities and town banks in Germany from WWI through the 1920′s and 30′s. Though it was not legal currency, it was generally accepted, and actually proved useful due to the outrageous inflation in Germany at the (…) Read more »

    I couldn’t resist posting this video of the Thames River in London in 1935! The film is an early color video; it used Gasparcolor, which is a very rare and old way of adding color to film. You can read a very detailed and admiring article about Gasparcolor here. I find old color pictures and (…) Read more »
