#lookingbacklookingforward 88 In memory of a pair I had in the 70s @shoeicons only mine were black patent heels and soles with yellow patent straps. I remember being told off for wearing them while pregnant with my youngest by the art director of a modelling job my eldest was working on. I loved those shoes. Madness!! Probably bought at #russellandbromley #london #shoes #shoelover #onlyflatshoesnow #familyhistory #socialhistory #vogue the other pair are shown for fun, there's loads more on his site.

β€˜β€¦ICHT & SON / …ER β—‡ GOT’ Such a tantalising message from seventeenth century Germany. What could it mean? Something about light, and God? That seems most likely, even though God’s lost one of his German Ts. But then no-one cared so much about spelling in 1600. 
To me, fragments with hints of writing are always the most fulfilling to find, because it enables you to have a treasure hunt twice: first for the object, and then for its meaning - and this can be done at leisure, at home, in a comfy chair with a nice cup of tea. So far, the complete text has eluded me - what do you think it might read in full?

My son found this Westerwald fragment, when we were down by the river a couple of weeks ago. His eye was infinitely better than mine, and while I came away with a few pieces that made me happy, he came away with two that made us both excited. This is the one, and the other will have to wait for another summer Saturday. I was permitted to photograph them, but ownership remains firmly with the finder, and they are proudly displayed in his room. Today he’s having his birthday party, on the theme of red pandas, and skateboarding. I made a cake for him yesterday, which you can see up thereπŸ‘†πŸΌin the story. He wants the slice with the nose. That’s where the icing’s thickest.

It’s almost time for the Letchworth Vintage Festival!  On the 28th and 29th July the town centre is the place to be, with retro fashion displays, free dance classes, music , classic cars, a land train and so much more!
We’re away on the Sunday, but join us on Saturday 28th July for some vintage inspired cakes and a display of vintage baking items - how many will you remember?
We’ll also have a retro circular jigsaw on the Community Jigsaw Table and we’re also planning a display of Wynd history from its beginnings over 100 years ago!  Read about squalor in The Wynd in the 1920s, the major fire of 1928 and remember it in its many forms over the years.
It all happens on The Wynd!

β€œBeep Beep II". Fine art, low bas relief piece created by layering plaster & powder pigment. This is where my sense of humor and artwork collide! .
.
I love thinking about the world as it was and then adding a modern twist. This original composition is based the Pueblo peoples’ petroglyphs found at La Cieneguilla, New Mexico. The meaning of many petroglyphs is elusive, however the coyote is known as a clever trickster. Roadrunners might represent mental and physical speed and agility. Since both animals are clever, perhaps the speed aspect is simply the reason that the coyote never catches roadrunner. .

Rock paper Scissors, 2017, Limestone, granite, 4' x 10' x 7' +/- My most recent public art installation in downtown Turners Falls, MA. RPS represents the history of the village, from its earliest geological roots, its industrial foundation, and its  social fabric. Also on the Rock rock is the date of the 1676 massacre of the King Phillip's War that gave way to the foundation and development of Turners Falls in the latter 19th century. Because Turners has a long history of conflict, even to the present day, I used the game of Rock Paper Scissors as an allegory for conflict resolution.

β €β € 'Get busy with the fizzy'! β €β €
β € β €
My grandparents had a sodastream. I remember the strange sub-aqua noise it made as it cranked up the bubbles and I also remember that it made rubbish watery drinks, like the 'cola', which definitely had notes of tarmac... β €β €
β €
But Sodastream wasn't invented in the 1980s. I was surprised to learn that it was, in fact, launched in 1903 by Gilbey's distillery to create a carbonated drink to be enjoyed with their gin. It was a large, unwieldy and expensive machine, so they were mostly installed in stately homes. Apparently, one of the very earliest was in Buckingham Palace. β €β €
β €
The first affordable carbonation machine that could actually fit in an average house came in the 1950s. This bottle is from the mid 1920s-1930s. I imagine it must have come from one of the local country house estates. I haven't yet been able to find any pictures of Sodastream bottles or the machines from this time, so imagine they don't turn up too often. β €β €
β €
This bottle was a nightmare to clean as it was filled with creosote when I pulled it out of the ground. Perhaps this was also one of the early flavours. πŸ˜„ πŸ›’οΈ β €β €

Please swipe for the classic plastic!

Victorian-Edwardian fly or suspender button: 'Blackett, West Smithfield St'. Found on the River Thames foreshore, London.

The Blackett family originated in north east England and were drawn to London during the Industrial Revolution. The first reference to a Blackett in Smithfield can be found in 1793 directory listing a T. Blackett, 'tailor and salesman', based at 21 West Smithfield.
.
By the Victorian period, the business was based at 31 West Smithfield and was run by James Blackett who owned a factory in Smithfield manufacturing β€œbutchers’ requisites”. This refers to characteristic blue and white striped aprons worn by butchers (see image right) working at nearby Smithfield meat market which had been the center of London's meat trade since the Medieval period.
.
The business continues to be referenced in trade directories and censuses in the late 19th Century with Harold Frank Blackett, described as a butchers’ clothing manufacturer in the 1911 census.
.
Reference can also be found to other activities of the Blacketts. A John Blackett gave evidence in Parliament in 1837 in relation to the activities of the nightly watch. In 1862 a Frank Blackett residing at 31 West Smithfield is recorded as exhibiting a patented 'inaccessible lock' at the International Exhibition.

In the late 60s, David Rodinsky disappeared; his room above a synagogue in Whitechapel lay undisturbed for over a decade.  Rodinsky's world was that of East European Jewry, cabbalistic speculation, an obsession with language as code, and terrible loss.

From the bloodshed of the Suez Crisis to the giddy heyday of Beatlemania, from the first night of Look Back in Anger, British life during the late 50s and early 60s seemed  more colourful, exciting and controversial than ever.

These two protest posters were on the desk, and then the owner decided not to sell. I probably expressed too much interest. 
The posters were made for an anti-War protest in Vancouver 1968. The remnants of rusty nails that were used to attach the paper to wooden posts was tangible. The oil from the wood still visible. 
Museum-worthy. 
But unfortunately the owner put them back in a sealed container and decided his storage unit was the best place for them to reside. As historical documents they deserve to be in a place where they stimulate conversation. But it’s a fool who gets between a collector and his collection!

In days of yore, throughout rural Lincolnshire, the right of 'jus prime noctis' was exercised by Feudal Landlords, meaning it would be the masters right to claim the virginity of any young maiden on the night before her wedding. By the late 19th century this ancient ritual had mostly been replaced by the ritualistic pouring of black treacle or molasses onto the veil and wedding gown of any bride of the village on the morning of her nuptials. This was not carried out as you might expect for good luck, but as a symbol of the virility of the master over the local peasants. The poor bride would have to spend her wedding day in rather a sticky mess (quite a hazard with wasps for summer brides). Thankfully this practice has now all but died out in rural Lincolnshire, with the exception of the village of Irnham, where the village shop doesn't stock treacle…and the master still insists on the pick of the ugly ones!

During WW1 an extra 2.5 million acres were required for arable farming to feed the country and reduce reliance on imports of crops such as wheat. By 1917 the β€˜ploughing up’ campaign had begun and Harewood included its Walled Garden in the campaign. .

We've walked past this lovely old advert on the side of a converted apartment block many times & finally decided to do a little research. Dating to the early 19th century, the building, called Junction Works, was originally a Lead works. H.A. Howard & Sons were in business from the 1940's to the 1960's. Gileric Gowns were named after the two sons, Gil and Eric. They were very good quality and can still be bought in vintage shops today. This original advert was rediscovered in 1991 when a modern hoarding was removed at the start of conversion into apartments. The building sits next to Paradise Wharf at the junction of the Rochdale and Ashton canals. Sometimes you can learn some nice stuff on dog walks!

Plaza de Toros de Ronda
Claims to be the oldest bullring in Spain.  A perfect circle with double arches over Tuscan columns.  Small and extremely beautiful, faded paint, warm sandy stonework, stunning curved wooden roof, whitewash walls and simple ironwork.
It was a calm and quiet place on our early morning visit, the beauty of the space belying the murderous sport that took place here.  The pens where the bulls were kept somber and chilling by contrast to the stable block.
