The classified advertising rates and subscription fees for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1933.  Found this clipping in an old book.

"Agony column" would be an excellent name for a band or the Op-Ed page.

holy crap

Always reblog “Everyone ever except Michael Collins”
Brigadier General in the United States Air Force, Command Module Pilot and designer of the patch for Apollo 11, and most isolated human in history for parts of said mission.
Respect, General Collins.

You broke my mind, Tumblr. [Wikipedia]Since he was orbiting the moon when a different craft put Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon (and thus this third-person perspective photo), this would make him the original &#8216;Major Tom&#8217; that Bowie sang about.

The Standard Dictionary of Facts, 1917 edition.

Ten volume encyclopedia (divided by theme) bound into one book, originally published in 1908 by Frontier Press and revised every couple years. Shown here are the American presidential details, ending with Woodrow Wilson (who was near the end of his first term at the time of publication) from the History section, and the book opened to a random place in the Science/Education/Religion section (thus the segue from Lungs to Lutherans).

The decline and fall of 1980s hair.

Was in a Goodwill and found an 8&#8221;x10&#8221; frame with a girl&#8217;s face in it. Upon getting the back off, I discovered there were three sequential school portraits of the same person inside.  So this is Brenda Louise in her sophomore, junior, and senior years &#8212; 1988, 1989, and 1990.

What&#8217;s hilarious to me is that she looks like a cross between two of my classmates, Janine and Lori. (Janine still looks kinda like this.)

Decopaged apple box label, 1930s-1940s, mounted in a rest stop along with about fifty others by different manufacturers. Most fruit box labels from the first half of the last century that were slapped on wooden crates were serious works of art; nowadays everything comes in cardboard boxes so labels like this are no longer produced.
