propagandery: “The Dithyrambler expels the weak humours by pummeling your spine and trunk with intense beatings.” Vintage Exercise Machines

Ab-Crunching Machine A German named Gustav Zander is famous for being one of the first inventors of mechanical exercise equipment......1800's

Gustaf Vilhelm Zander, 1835-1920, played a major part in the development of new exercise machines. Zander opened his first institute in 1864. This Zander institute was filled with all sorts of complicated machines, which were scientifically designed to twist and contort the body in all directions. They reportedly resembled torture devices. Regardless, popularity of the Zander institutes grew and soon they were all over Europe. Thanks a lot Dr. Zander. Thanks for all the guilt.

the gorgeous dress that Victorian stage actress Zelda Seguin is wearing in this photo. #Victorian #19th_century #1800s #photograph #antique #vintage #woman #actress #Zelda_Seguin #stage #dress

Zelda Seguin. I argue it's late 1860s because of the high waist and lumpy kind of bustle that becomes the lobster tail, my friend (an expert on Victorian fashion) argues it's more "tea tray" and therefore mid-late 1880s. Feel free to debate.

Victorian Photo Booth

A Victorian couple miles away from the static portraits usually seen from that era

Smiling Victorians, I could go through a whole box of old photos in an antique store and never find one as sweet as this. Love it, truly rare!

Victorian photo booth OR “A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.” that's why this is the coolest thing ever.

Victorian "photo booth." Such a different side of people than we usually see from their stiff portraits. Awww. Sweet

Victorian photo booth photo...breaks the straight-faced old fashioned photo rule so sweetly!

Napoleon Sarony, who took the picture, was a portrait photographer most known for his portraits of the stars of late-19th-century American theater. His pictures of people like Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde are in museums around the world. She is striking looking.

Looks like its date night. - victorian couple on a tandem bicycle. c.1890s

Tandem bike. This reminds me of the old song.. 'Sadie, Sadie give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a fancy marriage. I can't afford a carriage. But you'd look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.' Sung this to all my kids and now my grandkids. Love this song

Are they having fun? Maybe it's a first date... :) <> How'd you like to have to wear that lady's get-up when you jump on your bike? (vintage tandem bike, bicycle, whew) To those bike riding pioneers who worked out the kinks for us - hats off!
