Old school cash register
Remember the sounds that old cash registers made? I worked for a man named Griff when I was in High School and then on college breaks. The cash register I used was exactly like this one…and you had to make change in your head, no calculators!
Remember when folks who were cashiers using one of these 'sophisticated' cash registers, had to go to special training school to work at large chain grocery stores?

Here's a Good Humor Ice Cream truck from the 1950s,Good Humor Truck. Remember rushing inside to get a nickel from Mom? Didn't always work. haha!
My dad was a Good Humor Ice Cream man and i remember one time he let me ride along with him and man oh man did i feel on top of the world, i felt like the luckies kid ever. I sat in the front on the metal compartment where the passenger seat should be. This was by far a special dear memory. What i wouldn't give for a picture of that day. Every time i see an old GH pic I wish it was that fun day captured on film that I can cherish forever.
Ice Cream Man! I have really special memories of my 'Good Humor' man.....
Check out this old time ice cream truck! They didn't even have a window for the server. He had to get out of the truck and individually hand the children their ice creams. :) #icecream #icecreamtruck #love #truelove #oldschool

21-year-old Theodore Roosevelt, one of many of young Roosevelt we have at MDB Here we have him with bushier mutton chops. Here we have him not wearing a shirt. Enjoy. Submitted by Alaina Lots of great pics of historical figures.
Teddy Roosevelt at age 21 - Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) 26th President of the United States (1901–1909). He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests & achievements, & his leadership of the Progressive Movement, as well as his "cowboy" persona & robust masculinity. Roosevelt's achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, & soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.

Handsome young Teddy Roosevelt. One of the most awesome (yet... maybe a little awkward?) blogs ever. My Daguerreotype Boyfriend.

18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin-Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912.
18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin. I love the odd-ball history that is a bit too weird for the academy. The existence of giants is one of those laughable notions. How different would our ideas of history and of nature be, if not for the prudish censors?
★ Giant skulls and skeletons of a race of Goliaths have been found on a very regular basis throughout the Midwestern states for more than 100 years. Giants have been found in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and New York, and their burial sites are similar to the well-known mounds of the Mound Builder people. The spectrum of Mound builder history spans a period of more than 5,000 years (from 3400 BCE to the 16th CE), a period greater than the history of Ancient Egypt ★
Robert Lincoln the son of Abraham Lincoln, was waiting to board a crowded train when the train lurched forward and he fell between the platform and the body of the passenger car he was trying to board. But before harm came, he was seized by the collar and yanked to the platform. His rescuer was Edwin Booth the brother of the man that would soon kill President Lincoln.

THE SMALL HOUSE MOVEMENT IN A NUTSHELL, by Jay Schaefer: It makes sense that, as more information gets published about small houses, more misinformation is bound to surface too. Most of the stories out there are as harmless as they are entertaining. So far as I can tell, it’s not true that the typical tiny house can be built for less than the cost of a single tank of gas; nor is it, apparently, true that some of these places can be heated for a whole week by a single human fart.

The Second Woolworth's Store The first Woolworth's store was founded, with a loan of $300, in February of 1879 by Frank Winfield Woolworth, but the store failed within six months. However, a second store he opened on June 21, 1879 in Lancaster, Pa., became a success. This old photo of clerks outside the F.W. Woolworth store was taken in June 1879.
On February 22, 1879, Frank Winfield Woolworth opens "The Great Five Cent Store" in Utica, NY. It failed in six months, but the second store he opened in June of the same year seemed to catch on.

Throughout the history of the United States Marine Corps, Native Americans served in the Corps as Navajo Code Talkers. Their role was to transmit secret tactical messages using codes developed in their native languages. The photo below is of Navajo Code Talkers in the Bougainville operation in 1943. The photo is from the Photograph Collection (COLL/3948) at the Marine Corps Archives and Special Collections.
USMC Navajo Codetalkers during the Bougainville Campaign 1943. Their code was never broken by the Japanese during WWII. Code talking was pioneered by Choctaw Indians serving in the U.S. Army during World War I. There were 400 Native American Marine Code Talkers in World War II from the Navajo, Cherokee, Choctaw, Lakota, Meskwaki and Comanche tribes.
Some 44,000 Native Americans served in the United States military during World War II. For every one drafted, one and a half volunteered; American Indian participation in the war per capita exceeded any other group.
