An 18th century hand-illustrated page from an Ottoman Turk dental book showing a molar infected with toothworms. As early as Babylonian times and lasting well into the eighteenth century, it was thought that a toothache was caused by worms. (The theory was disproved by Jacob Christian Schaffer in 1757.)

‘In 1915, Mack Sennett assembled a bevy of girls known as the Sennett Bathing Beauties to appear in 'provocative' bathing costumes in comedy short subjects, in promotional material, and in promotional events like Venice Beach beauty contests.’

This is a picture of some women from the 1920's. Women during this time period began having more free time. The "flapper girl" was more of a symbol than a reality. All women did not live the typical flapper girls life, but instead worked from home. More jobs opened up for women to take up, while home jobs became less time consuming.

A forgotten profession: In the days before alarm clocks were widely affordable, people like Mary Smith of Brenton Street were employed to rouse sleeping people in the early hours of the morning. They were commonly known as ‘knocker-ups’ or ‘knocker-uppers’. Mrs. Smith was paid sixpence a week to shoot dried peas at market workers’ windows in Limehouse Fields, London. Photograph from Philip Davies’ Lost London: 1870-1945.

Mary Smith was a Knocker-up who earned sixpence a week shooting dried peas at sleeping workers windows. A Knocker-up's job was to rouse sleeping people so they could get to work on time, a profession that started in England and Ireland during the Industrial Revolution, before alarm clocks were affordable or reliable./Noah needs a knocker up!

Vintage drug ads: Tyrant in the house? Try Thorazine.
evidently Thorazine was thought to be a cure all
angry man vintage ads
Thorazine was a wonder drug invented in 1950. For those pesky and unsufferable family members...I am pinning this because I was given this as soon as I brought my son home from the hospital, even though I am extremely allergic to it. Given by a nurse who visited my home, while 2 "friends" waited. That day they took my daughter and infant son from my arms. One friend wanted my daughter for herself. Thorazine makes my tongue swell, my eyes go up, etc. within seconds.
Jazz trumpeteer Valaida Snow.She was named “Little Louis” after Louis Armstrong himself, who used to call her the world’s second best jazz trumpet player besides himself. She played concerts throughout the USA, Europe and China. Later she became addicted to morphine. While touring through Denmark in 1941, she was arrested by the Nazis and probably kept at Vestre Fængsel, a Danish prison in Copenhagen that was run by the Nazis, before being released on a prisoner exchange in May 1942.

Jazz trumpeteer Valaida Snow. She was named “Little Louis” after Louis Armstrong himself, who used to call her the world’s second best jazz trumpet player besides himself.

While touring through Denmark in 1941, she was arrested by the Nazis and probably kept at Vestre Fængsel, a Danish prison in Copenhagen that was run by the Nazis, before being released on a prisoner exchange in May 1942.
African American jazz musician and entertainer Valaida Snow (1904-1956) was raised on the road in a show-business family with her sister Lavaida Snow. She learned to play cello, bass, banjo, violin, mandolin, harp, accordion, clarinet, trumpet, and saxophone at professional levels by the time she was 15. She also sang and danced. After focusing on the trumpet, she quickly became so famous at the instrument that she was named "Little Louis" after Louis Armstrong, who used to call her the world's second best jazz trumpet player besides himself. She played concerts throughout the USA, Europe and China. Her most successful period was in the 1930s when she became the toast of London and Paris. Around this time she recorded her hit song, "High Hat, Trumpet, and Rhythm." She performed in the Ethel Waters show, "Rhapsody In Black", in New York.

Vintage photo poverty London Street life by John Thomson 1876-77

From “Victorian London Street Life” by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith, 1877 ~ .... Huddled together on the workhouse steps in Short's Gardens, the ''Crawlers of St. Giles's'', may be seen both day and night seeking mutual warmth consolation in their extreme misery. As a rule, they are old women reduced by vice and poverty to that degree of wretchedness which destroys even the energy to beg. They have not the strength to struggle for bread, and consequently suffer starvation.
