Waterworks James Trautman
Saturday was the best day when I was a kid in Elizabeth, New jersey. No school, and the weekly bus trip up town. The routine was to have a turkey lunch at the Woolworth 5 & 10. I can still see myself sitting at the counter rushing through the meal, so that I could run to the toy area. I can still picture the wooden counter with bins full of soldiers, cars, boats, kites, yo-yo's and water guns. In the mid-'50s this was the place to be. Each week a new supply of plastic water guns arrived.
Collecting Kitchen Glass Walt Lemiski
In the mid-1920’s the songsmiths of Tin Pan Alley were crooning “Doodle-Doo-Doo”, and about “Swanee” and “Sweethearts”. It was the era of that great hit “Looking at the World Thru Rose Colored Glasses” and of songs whose lyrics rhymed with such new words as Frigidaire. Yes siree! the songs of the day were right up with the times, and the times were a changin’! With the introduction of the electric or gas fridge the shape of North American kitchens, and indeed the lives of millions of folk, changed forever. And progress was the byword of the 1920’s.

Jaws Memorabilia James Burrell
Released in the summer of 1975, the classic thriller Jaws captured the public’s attention like no movie before it and instilled in them a fear of the open water. The tale of a enormous great white shark that terrorizes the population of a seaside resort town, prompting the local police chief to join forces with a marine researcher and shark hunter to track and kill it was Hollywood’s original summer blockbuster hit. Taking an enormous bite out of the box-office, it smashed all previous records and made a household name of the film’s director, a then unknown 27-year-old named Steven Spielberg. But before it became a watershed movie Jaws started life as a bestselling novel by author Peter Benchley. A former speechwriter for President Lyndon B Johnson, Benchley was also a journalist for the Washington Post and an editor for Newsweek Magazine. Fascinated with sharks since an early age, he was inspired to write Jaws after reading a 1964 news piece about a fisherman who had caught a 4,550-pound great white off Long Island. Several years later Benchley would propose a shark-themed story to Doubleday publishers and Jaws would be released in February of 1974.
The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
Cranberry Glass By Tony Shaman
What can you give the person that has everything? The answer is not as difficult as you might think. If the individual on your gift list is a collector of antiques, or even recent-vintage items, the answer is even simpler: cranberry glass. In England, and in Europe generally, the delicate, pink-hued glass still goes by its original name, ruby glass. That older name, incidentally, aptly describes a product that also makes an ideal gift for couples celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. Conversely, in North America ruby has given way to 'cranberry,' a term that more closely describes the glass's delicate, pink colour. There are several explanations why the term 'cranberry' was adopted on this side of the Atlantic.
