Things from the olden days that please or amuse me
Molly Ringwald & Robert Downey Jr in The Pick-Up Artist (1987)
Publicity still for “The Strange Love Of Martha Ivers” (1946). A film noir starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott and Kirk Douglas in his film debut.
A colorful American Motors display from the 1976 Chicago Auto show. Dig the generic, Bicentennially-appropriate “founding father” on the display board at the right.
Countdown to Opening Day, 1939 World’s Fair
Artwork by Albert Staehle (1899 - 1974). Handbill in the Collection on the 1939/1940 New York World’s Fair at the Museum of the City of New York.
The Fair Opened on April 30th, 1939, and was promoted via many beautiful posters and design renderings.
