Library of Congress. 1890 photochrom color.
I have two lamps built into the wall on either side of the bed. Rarely on at the same time. On now. The photographer in me notices the light that does not at all come through in the header. With the tripod I am taking multiple frames and zooms to see if any are sharp. Trade paperbacks, Book Club, science, etc., all of…
Harvesting rice, Crowley, Louisiana. 1938. Lee, Russell, photographer. Kinja ate first try, pardon the editing.
Having one of those sinus events where it sounds like you are talking in a helmet. Adding as we go. New DVD setup in the soundproofed section. 27 inch analog monster. One of my favorite 70s Burt movies.
I solved the DVD problem. Moved the nice old 27 inch analog TV and the crappy old DVD player. Ironically the abandoned bedroom is now the most protected room. Bonus: Ceiling fan.
I went through a whole box of thumbtacks and a whole box of clear push pins. All of my spare beer flat cardboards that I was saving for paperbacks. Still need more thumbtacks. I did find more push pins at Big Lots! Also Fletch. And I added all the coverage to the main post from multiple room angles.
Latest home improvement project. Sound proofing the panic/reading room. Exterior and interior. This and the kitchen are the only insulated rooms, with all walls to the interior. I also blocked out the back bedroom/storage windows, which turned out to be difficult. But done now. Multiple layers. Kramer had levels, the…
They’re trying to wash us away.
Bernheimer Home, 1922. Library of Congress and New York Public Library Digital Collections.
Barbed wire fence. Cascade County, Montana. 1939 May. Rothstein, Arthur, 1915-1985, photographer. Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Black-And-White Negatives (170,901)
Did Kinja change the editor? It’s terrible. Opium appropriate. Poppies, poppies. My introduction to opium dens was of course Sherlock Holmes.
And beyond. Watching Unidentified Flying Oddball (1979).
What happened to the nose? Wiki page said there were signs rods and poles were used to remove the nose. One legend was it was shot off with a cannonball by Napoleon’s men. In the very earliest photos and drawings it was mostly just the head sticking out of the sand.
1936 Maine. Carl Van Vechten.
NL still interesting. Dusting off the CCrane radio tonight vs. Brewers. KMOX 1120 clear channel.
1895. My Wiki Wormhole last night was early flight experiments. Once you got a certain height off the ground (50-60 ft.?) crashes were almost always fatal. In the very early days people would jump off towers with homemade contraptions with no basis in science and would invariably kill themselves. Otto Lilienthal…
