In honor of Memorial Day, the first photo I am going to share is one of the most popular photos I've ever shared at Vintage Black Glamour, Lena Horne with a group of Tuskegee Airmen on January 1, 1945. There are countless photos of Ms. Horne visiting Tuskegee Airmen and other military personnel to show her support for their service. She also showed her support for them by refusing to perform for segregated military audiences during World War II. Photo: Associated Press.

Gabríélle 'Coco' Chanel and the one true, great love of her life, Captain Arthur Edward 'Boy' Capel, in 1913 - six years prior to his tragic death in a car crash in late 1919, the single most devastating event in Chanel's life. Twenty-five years after the event, Chanel confided to her friend, Paul Moránd: 'His death was a terrible blow to me. In losing Capel, I lost everything. What followed was not a life of happiness, I have to say.'

In 1890 George W. Johnson became the first African American to record commercially. A common story is that Johnson, a former slave, was discovered singing on the streets of Washington, D.C., by Berliner recording agent Fred Gaisberg. Gaisberg himself perpetrated this myth along with the falsehood that Johnson was later hanged for murdering his wife.

George W. Johnson: Pioneering Black Recording Artist | Jas Obrecht Music Archive
On the phonograph side, during the boom of phonograph parlors, people began to find more and more creative ways to mass produce and distribute music. Before, each phonograph had to be custom made. Later a "pantograph" type system helped to be able to create 90-150 copies of each record at one time. Black artists like George Washington Johnson, dubbed the phonograph's "first major African American Star" would play his famous "Laughing Coon" song thousands of times for 20 cents per rendition.

A 14th century Bishop's seal discovered by metal detector enthusiasts will go on display at the Manx Museum. The silver seal, which was discovered by Andy Falconer, is described as "incredibly significant". The seal itself is about three centimetres in length, made of silver, and shows two figures sitting facing out and a third kneeling in prayer. Around the edge there is an inscription in Latin, which translates as "Let the prayers to God of Germanus and Patricius help us".
Medieval silver seal (14th century) belonged to a Christian bishop recently unearthed by a metal detector enthusiast on the Isle of Man (UK)
Antarctica, 1961: A Soviet Surgeon Has to Remove His Own AppendixIn 1961, Rogozov was stationed at a newly constructed Russian base in Antarctica. The 12 men inside were cut off from the outside world by the polar winter by March of that year. In April, the 27-year-old Rogozov began to feel ill, very ill. His symptoms were classic: he had acute appendicitis. “He knew that if he was to survive he had to undergo an operation,” the British Medical Journal recounted. “But he was i

Leonid Rogozov, the only surgeon on an Antarctic expedition, performing surgery on himself after suffering from appendicitis. April 30, 1961...
Leonid Rogozov was a Soviet doctor who took part in the sixth Soviet Antarctic Expedition from 1960 to 1961. Unfortunately, he also happened to develop peritonitis on said expedition – a life threatening condition where removal of the appendix is necessary for survival. As the only doctor stationed at the Antarctica base at the time, Rogozov was forced to perform an appendectomy on himself.

In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever. Rogozov examined himself and discovered that his appendix was inflamed and could burst at any time. With a local anesthesia, he operated himself to remove the appendix. An engineer and a meteorologist assisted surgery.

medieval washing ball - For centuries soap was a luxury item and to enhance the experience it was common to combine ground up herbs and spices for rich texture. The spices delightfully exfoliate the skin and release a wondrous bouquet of fragrance. This is truly a medieval treat!

A Tudor Christmas Pie Excerpt: A Tudor Christmas Pie consisted of a Turkey stuffed with a goose - then stuffed with a chicken – then stuffed with a partridge and finally stuffed with a pigeon – all of this was put in a pastry case, called cheerfully – a coffin!

Icon of the Man of Sorrows In the complex nature of this object you can see a long history of veneration. The image at the centre, made of thousands of tiny precious stones, was believed to be able to work miracles when it was taken from Byzantium to Rome in the 14th century. There it was given a new wooden housing, and over the centuries that medieval encasing grew into the baroque object we see today, hallowed by time and belief
