First up, courtesy of Classic Film, a wonderful Flickr album of largely mid-century album covers....see more at http://bit.ly/20GkZHw
From 1959, here's Connie Francis Sings Italian Favorites; The album consists of traditional Italian and Neapolitan songs (e. g. Santa Lucia) as well as then-current contemporary songs like Volare (Nel blu dipinto di blu) or Piove which both had risen to international fame after being Italy's entries to the Eurovision Song Contests of 1958 and 1959.
Next an oldie but goodie--a mix of vintage and new pieces from Howard Murray's beautiful sideboard Easter scene of a few years back.
Especially love the vintage honeycomb tissue bunny and of course who can resist the big-eyed vintage salt and pepper chicks. It's followed by a great pre-WWI French Christmas postcard from our growing collection. Postcards from this period were noted for their images of idealized women, children and animals.
And finally, an oldie but goodie by special request, a from a paper "city" circa 1900--called the FAIRY CITY---it presents a view of American city life 100 years ago --A RARE FIND THAT HOWARD LAMEY UNEARTHED some time back--click here for more. Again, click on the photos and links.
