“DB Cooper” hijacking of 1971. Parachuting out of the commercial jet with $200k. Whereabouts are still unknown.

Repost @oldehopeantiques. "The Union Star". A rare and important pieced and stuffed work cotton quilt made by Elizabeth Holmes. Probably Loudoun County, Virginia, 1869. This historic quilt features 39 stars, an American flag, with dove and the inscription "Abraham Lincoln. Grant. PR (President) Colfax VI (Vice President) and The Union Forever 1868. This remarkable quilt was made by Elizabeth Holmes to commemorate the 1868 election of President Ulysses S. Grant and Vice President Schuyler Colfax.
This exceptional piece of history is being exhibited for sale at the Philadelphia Antique Show in the booth of Olde Hope Antiques.

Doing research for May 2019 #exhibition @halsey_institute in Charleston.
Toured McLeod Plantation which offered a more realistic and unromantic perspective of plantation life from the enslaved. Stately view of the main house framed by majestic trees and Spanish moss, contrasted by tiny slave quarters dotting the avenue that leads to the main house; learning about some of the individuals who lived on the property. So many hands to build this paradise that so few was allowed to enjoy... Sinister landscape hunting...

So much #AmericanHistory in #Charleston

Did you know the city was walled and used to be called #CharlesTown ?
The #ProvostDungeon used to house a secret supply of gunpowder from British invaders amoung its many uses. Wild how they used handmade bricks to create this architecture

Here's a rare photo of my Grandpa Tom not in the Bay Area, but touring Los Angeles and making a stop at Griffith Observatory. Looking sharp as always, I'm grateful to have his stories and convictions as a continuous source of inspiration. See you tomorrow at @giantrobotstore at 3:00PM with @robsato!
