Spotted this vintage 1910 poster over the weekend and’ve been wondering … is one of ‘em a tranny? Where’s the girl? Notice how dastardly ‘staches and bladed weapons outnumber guns by a longshot (no pun intended).
I love how you can see the edge of the 16mm film flashing by.
Though I’ve been in SF for well over a decade, I lived in Vegas for years and would go there every summer while growing up in Chicago. To say I have a soft spot for the “old” Vegas would be like saying I just sorta-kinda like beer.
Pulled this pull-top out of the garage to share with you, ‘cuz you’re geeky like that. Western Beer, not to be confused with Great Western Beer, was brewed by Minnesota‘s Cold Spring Brewing from about 1969 through 1990 (according to Tavern Trove).
Anyone know what the Native American-ish / ranch-style markings See the rest »
Popeye will trade you spinach for another chance at them Luckies.
We spotted this in an antique shop north of Ukiah, CA. Manufactured by O.D. Jennings & Co., this Cigarette Slot Machine gave you the option of buying the smokes you want or actually gambling for them. You know there’s a sweet smoking = gambling with your life pun in there, but I’m not touchin’ it.
New York DP and Photographer Timur Civan, with help from his “Russian lens technician”, took a circa 1908 (possibly earlier) Wollensak 35mm F5.0 Cine-Velostigmat hand-cranked cinema camera lens and grafted it onto a Canon 5D Mark II.
(*For the less geeky, the 5D’s a seriously kick-ass digital cam that shoots still and video and full HD*)
Wheels Willy (1977) wants to show you his one-eyed willy. With a patch over one eye and a name like Willy why the hell would they mold his hand like that? He doesn’t come with any accessories. But maybe he hasn’t found the right one yet (*rim shot).
Luke Duke (1981) is just missing his rubber waist-band. I’m sure Willy can keep his eye out for one.
Helped a good friend move out of what used to be my wife’s old apartment. Back behind the victorian moldings of their built-in bookcase were dozens of vintage beer cans—as if the former occupants would toss ‘em up and over after they’d knock ‘em back. A nice little time capsule of pull-top Lucky Lager, Miller High Life, Hamm’s, Rainier, and Olympia vintage beer cans.
