|The old rippled glass pharmacist lamp is definitely my favorite|

I initially grabbed it because of the sheer volume of people they managed to pack into the photo and of course the clothes. But there's a little history there as well, did a little research and it seems it's from the 1924 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis.

This little gem was hiding under a work bench in a basement and was completely filthy, I didn't even see the bomber painting on top till I got it back to the studio and wiped it down. I checked in with the National USAF museum and it turns out Capt.Tyndall was a P-47 pilot in the 19th Fighter Squadron who flew missions over Saipan from 1944-45.
This is going to be a fun little project, over all it's in pretty great shape for being pulled out of a barn. Did a little research on the brand, it seems like a lot of companies, they started out making motorized bicycles around and dropped the motorized versions around the 30's.

Unless you've got a backyard with some proper ground, gardening in NYC can be a completely thankless endeavor. After battling with rats, aphids and ants my little studio fire escape garden has finally yielded some results and it all seems worth the trouble. Those will the world's most expensive cucumbers.

I know the Ace already beat out everyone in the biggest flag contest but this thing was too pretty not to hang up in the studio It measures just over 11' wide by 5' tall, the 42 star version of the flag dates to around 1890. I just found it crumpled in a ball at the back of a crawl space in a house built around 1910.
