Twin Cities 1924

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.

WW2 USAF Foot Locker

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.

Norman of England

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.

4th of July

giant brass clip & old yacht patch

ivory bangles

just for scale...
A few picks from my flea digging up in Maine over the holiday. I'm dying to know what the story is with this huge brass clip, any guesses?
