Quote from: K_Dubb on January 11, 2016, 03:28:37 PMThis photograph of a snowy Seattle, though probably from the big storm that hit in February 1916, is one of the most evocative I've seen of that era. God I wish I could walk down that street in stout boots, fur-trimmed overcoat, and bowler hat! I'd probably have an elegant, upturned moustache, too.You can see the Bon MarchÃ© sign on the right, one of downtown's great department stores.
Quote from: albrecht on January 11, 2016, 06:04:07 PMThat is an awesome storm and pic. I'm told that Seattle doesn't usually get winter weather like that. It doesn't remind me of "Its a Wonderful Life" as someone else mentinoed.It sucked when Bon Marche got eaten up by Macy's. Boston Dentists is intriguing. Maybe back then folks still had the idea that technology/medicine was better "back east?"
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on January 11, 2016, 06:35:25 PMWonderful pictures k_dubb!Not to be left out I tried to rustle up a few from my home town in 1916. Came across this interesting one:The K-R-I-T Motor Car Company was based in Detroit and was in business from 1911 to 1916. Apparently they exported some to England - I think I'd have to splurge some guineas and get the cabriolet.I looked up the address of the dealership in London and it looks like a watch shop now:https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-0.1256321,3a,75y,337.96h,90t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m4!1sFgw2GsvWt0EarNoHU3suMA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xa1afa4dafa902474!6m1!1e1I'll see if I can find where the Krit factory was located back in the D.
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on January 11, 2016, 06:53:52 PMThe plot thickens....... Did Ernst Rohm happen to see the K-R-I-T emblem and nab it?

Quote from: K_Dubb on January 11, 2016, 07:00:49 PMWow that practically defines "vamp". You can sure feel the 1920s coming on.
Quote from: 21st Century Man on January 11, 2016, 06:56:27 PMAmerica's first female sex symbol of the silver screen. I give you Theda Bara who in 1916 was hitting her prime.That's the sexiest picture that I could find of her. She really wasn't all that hot and if she had lasted in film she would have gone on to more matronly roles I suspect in very short order. There were much prettier ladies in the Ziegfeld Follies at the same time but so far none had moved on to the movie business.

Quote from: Rix Gins on January 11, 2016, 07:44:44 PMHitler picked out the symbol himself, didn't he? Maybe it was him that saw a K-R-I-T drive by. lol
