The Antartic Snow Cruiser on the drive towards the ship that would take it to the south pole. The vehicle provides living space and laboratories to five scientists. Unfortunately, it was found to have no traction on snow unless driven in reverse and was eventually abandoned.

With a mix of architectural styles including Victorian Romanesque, the Tennessee Club was built in 1890. The main purpose of the club was to house social gatherings. In 1931, the Commercial Appeal reported the following about membership: “To have free access to it, to be of the company that gathers there daily for lunch, bridge, or to loaf and read, is to have ‘arrived’ in Memphis.” The building now houses prominent law firm Burch, Porter & Johnson.

Here’s a less than conventional rooftop view of the Cossitt Library on Front. It was originally built in 1893 after a donation from local businessman Frederick Cossitt. It was the first free and public library in Memphis, and the Romanesque sandstone building quickly became a landmark on the riverfront. After structural issues emerged, the building was sadly demolished in 1958 and replaced with a modern structure that still stands in its place. The retaining wall and sandstone 1920s rear addition are all that remain of the older structure.

Cotton Worker, Arizona 1940 by Dorothea Lange. -
It would be easy for my somewhat western themed account to fill up with the predominant iconography of the "American West": a bunch of white cowboy movie stars. (And don't get me wrong, I think real cowboys are super rad!) But the expanse and freedom and hope of the west belongs to women and native Americans and people of color also. They are an important piece of it's history. They were also here. I just have to dig a little to find more images, and I don't mind spending the time. So if you ever see a picture you think I should post, help me out and tag #bandannamuse -

In honor of National Pizza Month, this week’s Throwback Thursday historic photo is an image of the Pizza King. Located at 11135 E. Colfax Ave., the Pizza King opened late 1969 and remained open into the 1980s. Pizza King featured pizza, sandwiches and cold beer on tap or to go. The restaurant advertised its large 18-inch pizza, called “the largest pizza west of ???.” Children could play pinball or pool in the restaurant’s game room while parents relaxed in the dining room.

Из ГУМа с покупками, 1980 год, Москва. Такие детские педальные автомобили с закосом под автомобиль «Москвич» были широко распространены в СССР и дожили до 1990–х годов, а кое где и позже.
