REMEMBERING ARTIE SHAW

Who died this date in 2004...Artie Shaw (born Arthur Jacob Arshawsky; May 23, 1910 – December 30, 2004) was an American clarinetist, composer, bandleader, and actor. Also an author, Shaw wrote both fiction and non-fiction. 

Widely regarded as "one of jazz's finest clarinetists," Shaw led one of the United States' most popular big bands in the late 1930s through the early 1940s. Though he had numerous hit records, he was perhaps best known for his 1938 recording of Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguine."

REMEMBERING JACK BENNY

Who died this date in 1974....Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky; February 14, 1894 – December 26, 1974) was an American comedian, vaudevillian, radio, television and film actor, and violinist. Recognized as a leading American entertainer of the 20th century, Benny portrayed his character as a miser, playing his violin badly. In character, he would claim to be 39 years of age, regardless of his actual age.  Benny was known for comic timing and the ability to cause laughter with a pregnant pause or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated "Well!"

ICE SKATING! THEN & NOW

Thanks to Croton Friends of History for this fabulous link from ATLAS OBSCURA:

Ice Skating in New York Has Always Been Magical - And here are the vintage images to prove it...

In 1915, New York’s Hippodrome Theatre hosted an ice spectacular, a whizzing, gliding ballet on a sheet of frozen water on the stage. There, Charlotte Oelschl├Ągel, a 17-year-old skating prodigy from Germany known just by her first name, jumped and twirled her way into Broadway history.

MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Because we can't get enough vintage tinplate toys---and courtesy of a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com -- “Dick Tracy Automatic Police Station Complete with Squad Car”, 1952, by Marx.

The station is 6 x 9", car is 7.5”; crank handle, "the doors fly open & the squad car dashes to the rescue"; even though the car had minor roof dents & 2 small paint chips--and the station had typical warping to plastic---it sold for $590.24!

it's followed by an oldie but goodie and one of our favorite houses by Howard--the green spot clock house with three flatties--all we have to say is WOW. Click on the photos.
