The Secret Chelsea Garden


Like most of Europe, London felt as if it had been shoved inside a pizza oven at the weekend and we were on a desperate hunt for a drinking spot in the shade. Trying our luck in Chelsea, where blonde and bronzed young things seemingly all called Hugo or Henrietta were spilling out onto every available shaded terrace in the neighbourhood, it felt like a very foolish endeavour. Only, we had a lucky number up our sleeve.

Two Girls that Tricked the World: The Case of the Cottingley Fairies

1. Casino pool at the Alcazar Hotel: Then & Now St. Augustine, Florida, 1904.

And now, the Bikini Bobbers of the Summer of 1961


Today, in totally random photo stories fished out of the internet, we have this rather inexplicable contraption that seems to have been invented for the sole purpose of bobbing buxom babes in bikinis around to the amusement of the passing crowd.

Vacationing With Francis Coppola


Palazzo Margherita, Italy “The Coppola Family Hideaways”– sounds like a quaint retreat with an Italian mama making your life pure heaven.

Before the flapper, there was the Gibson Girl


Before the flapper came about as the embodiment of 1920s femininity, women in the late 1800s and early 1900s had a different role model from which to take cues – the Gibson Girl.

The Grand Sugar Pink Clifftop Hotel


Not the usual Mexico Cancun or Acapulco destination, we are in the northwestern region of Chihuahua where a most eccentric and isolated Hotel Posada Mirador perches over cliffs that are four times greater in magnitude than that of the Grand Canyon.
