Welcome to a website that has a fantastic selection of things to check out! This site is so intense that originally I thought I’d write up certain categories individually, then I realized that in one visit I had managed to click into just about every section to see what was there, so I’m bringing it to you all as one but be warned you can lose the better part of a day checking out all the different sections!
As you scroll down the page you’ll find Updates, Official Cheer, Motels & Cafes, Urban Studies, and Video & Audio.
Under Updates you’ll find: Matchbox Museum, Comic Covers, 100 Mysteries, Star Tribune, Black & White World, The 30s, Comic Ads, and Miscellany. Each of those could be written up as their own review they’re so filled with goodness. Thankfully you’ll find a great description of what each section has in it before you click in!
Official Cheer: this section is filled with amazing art from comics, advertisements, engravings, fashion, and a whole lot more. I spent a huge chunk of my time here exploring!
Motel & Café – here you’ll find postcards that came out of diners and motels in the 50’s and 60’s!
Urban Studies has my favorite section of this site in it! Be sure to check out Ghost Signs! This has been something that has fascinated me since I was a child. It is always interesting to see the faded advertisements on buildings – here you’ll find a whole gallery of them!
This site is a fantastic one to check out when you have a good deal of time to be able to get lost there, or if you can control your impulses, you can break it down into chunks to explore! Either way it is full of really neat stuff you need to go see!
