Big Eyes

It's time once again to reach into my pile of 35mm slides and choose a random image.  Okay, it wasn't really random.  I just liked this one because of her funky sunglasses. They remind me of those paintings of the same era.

Taken at the Trans World Airlines counter in St. Louis Lambert International Airport in the mid to late '60's.  Are the two other girls wearing matching dresses?

Archie's World and Welcome To It

A couple years ago, I covered this Spire comic which told the comic version of Revelations.  If that wasn't enough to frighten you into the straight and narrow, Spire Comics is back once again with this 1976 issue.  Yes, it's "Archie's World", and frankly, I'm a little frightened to visit. But let's go anyway.

For the Love of Pete - Day 6

As we near Valentine's Day (I know, it's only Day 6), I will need to start blowing some of these out in groups. I have more than 14 Valentines to showcase. STOP SIGHING!

For the Love of Pete - Day 5

Again, it might seem a little creepy today sending your teacher a Valentine suggesting a little "neckin'", but it's done in a humorous way.

For the Love of Pete - Day 4

In case you're just joining (ah, who am I kidding. Hello? Anyone out there?), I've been showcasing Valentine's sent to Peter Blank, a teacher from Freeburg, Illinois in the 1930's and '40's.

For the Love of Pete - Day 1

This past year I bought a box of vintage Christmas cards and Valentine's. I previously posted the Christmas cards here.  These Valentine's were all sent to a teacher named Peter Blank who lived in Freeburg, Illinois. From the look of the cards, they all date from the 1930's or 40's. I have a pretty good supply of them, so I thought I'd drag them out enjoy them one at a time over the days leading up to Valentine's Day.  A few have articulation, so I've included a gif showing them in action.  It's a look back on an innocent time when "love" was used much more freely, even among students and teacher.
