Today’s non-1940s hit is 1932, “Shine”. Originally titled “That’s why they call me shine”. The lyrics are by Cecil Mack and Tin Pan Alley songwriter Lew Brown and music by Ford Dabney. It was published in 1910. Shine is about a man named Shine who was badly beaten in an New York City race riot in 1900. Bing Crosby & The Mills Brothers recorded the song on February 29, 1932 with Studio orchestra conducted by Victor Young It is assessed by Joel Whitburn as reaching the No. 7 position in the charts of the day. #1940s #1940smusic #1940slifestyle #1940sfashion #1950s #1950smusic #1950slifestyle #ww2 #ww2history #ww2music #1940samerica #vintage #vintagemusic #oldies #classic #1960s #backintheday #silentgeneration #koreanwar #greatdepression #1960smusic #coololdies

Vintage chunky heavy Bakelite brooch with green dangling berries. Would look amazing on a red jacket or coat for Christmas! Some of the coating is off the dangles but it is still strong and sturdy. 2” diameter. There’s a little tag residue on the back, I’ll clean that off before shipping. $48 pp swipe left for pics . . #vintage #vintagejewelry #bakelite #bakelitebrooch #bakelitepin #vintagepin #vintagebrooch #christmasjewelry #mistletoe #kissme #holiday #christmas #christmasbrooch #christmaspin #vintagechristmas #vintagechristmasjewelry #brooch #pin #jewelry #jewelryforsale #1930s #1930sfashion #1930sjewelry #vintagejewelryforsale #1940s #1940sfashion #1940sjewelry #1940sbrooch #broochforsale

Evelyn and Dean would surely be surprised if they went back to Fountain Square in Cincinnati, Ohio, and found their Hotel Gibson had been torn down in 1977. They stayed there in 1943 when it was known, as it says on the reverse side, as "Cincinatti's largest and friendliest" hotel, with 1,000 rooms with bath starting at $2.75 and up. They stayed there several years before it was taken over by the Sheraton Corporation in 1950. The reverse side of this small format postcard bears their penned note about their future travel to Kentucky. It was mailed to Champaign, Illinois in 1943, and still has its green "Industry and Agriculture for Defense" 1 cent Liberty stamp. #postcard #vintage #1940s #Cincinnati #Ohio #Hotel #Gibson #historic #FountainSquare #GibsonHouse #architecture #brick #brickbuilding #LuxPostcardsEtc #etsy #facebook #instagram #instagiftguide #present #gift @LuxPostcardsEtc

When it came to life, Frank was known for doing things “his way” 🎶 but when it came to whiskey he always deferred to Jack! 🥃 Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra!💫Tonight, I’ll raise my glass to you! 🖤
———————————————————— I really do prefer re-enacting in the colder months. You get far more benefit from the British battledress in winter than in sweltering summer. Shame there are so few events from December through March. ———————————————————— Our platoon of Dukes riflemen head out on patrol with their replacement KOYLI lieutenant map reading from the rear. No enemy contact yet, but given the average subalterns map reading capability there is the danger unexpected contact lurks not far away... ———————————————————— Photo credit Eden Camp. ———————————————————— #edencamp #edencampmuseum #1940s #weekend #ww2 #wwii #ww2reenactment #ww2reenacting #ww2reenactor #reenactment #reenacting #reenactor #britisharmy #koyli #officer #platoon #patrol #dukeofwellingtonsregiment #dwr #riflemen #northwesteurope #campaign #holland #battle #malton #yorkshire

Escaping into the past. 💫 Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era or maybe I’m reliving a life from another era. Either way, I love getting lost in another world and having a little escape from reality. This has been such an interesting year from so many wonderful highs and heart breaking lows. I’m grateful as I look back, for all of the love that surrounds and protects me like the sleeping guard dog behind me. 🖤 Sending you all lots of love on this beautiful Wednesday 💋
