Inside the Castle in the Middle of the Death Valley Desert


On my first California road trip a few years ago, one of our stops I was looking forward to the most was Death Valley’s mysterious Scotty’s Castle, a sprawling Spanish style manor built in the middle of nowhere in the roaring twenties.

Where has this Amazing Comic Book Art Been all My Life?


I won’t pretend to be a comic book connoisseur. My brother and I collected Tintin books for our father to read to us before bedtime and well, that’s about as far as it went for my foray into the graphic arts world.

Greetings from California, the Hellish Oil-Pumping State of Yesteryear

Streamliner Trains that Oozed the Elegance of Old World Travel


Say, can I get that train pamphlet in a framed poster? That’s not something you’re likely to wonder about with any of the marketing coming out of today’s rail travel industry.

UFO Moving Day


I‘m a fan of most of the design that came out of the sixties, but if there’s one thing I just don’t get, it was the Futuro House.

One Guy’s Quest to Save the 1960s Time Capsule Homes of America


Miles McDermott might just be the youngest person to restore a time capsule home. An award-winning designer, local tastemaker and fellow old soul living in Phoenix, Arizona, he’s just spent the last few years transforming his own mid-century style home– which he found looking worse for wear on Craigslist– into a virtual museum of 1960s interior design.

The Neglected Ghost Town of Italy’s Dolce Vita Drinking Water


San Pellegrino is an icon of the Italian lifestyle, the most stylish brand of sparkling water you can order anywhere in the world, synonymous with luxury, fine dining, jet set summers in Europe and “la Dolce Vita”.

Beautiful Tomboys of the 1930s


I was tumbling through Tumblr, one of my favourite places on the internet to discover history’s lesser-known muses and there, on page thirty-something of my browsing, I stopped at a photograph of an androgynous woman taken by Marianne Breslauer, a name unfamiliar to me.

Crumbling Communist Murals of Soviet Germany


In the early nineties, well after the destruction of the Berlin Wall, did you know there were still over 300,000 Soviet soldiers in Eastern Germany?

Found in a Flea Market: A 1930s Scrapbook of a Young Lady’s American Dream


A recent visit to the Brooklyn flea market unearthed a quite remarkable treasure; a lovingly compiled 1939 scrap book once belonging to a young lady called Lotta June Miller.

The Story of Messy Nessy’s Makeover


Six years ago almost to the day, I launched this blog. I had no idea what I was doing, I barely understood what the term “blog” even meant, but I knew I had something to share so I signed up to the blogging platform WordPress, (which wasn’t much harder than creating a MySpace page), chose a basic design template I liked and dove in head first.

Paris, the Big Picture


This photograph had me at hello, somewhere midway through my morning scroll on Pinterest. I’m always lured in by photos of the Petite Ceinture, the abandoned inner city railway of Paris, a surviving relic of a bygone era, closed since 1934 (you can take a tour with me at the end of this post if you’re curious).

Up Close & Personal with Coco Chanel in her Apartment at the Ritz


The most controversial years in Coco Chanel’s life were spent living at the Hotel Ritz in Paris. While most of Paris was being booted out of their homes during the German occupation, Coco lived in luxury throughout most of World War II– thanks to a highly questionable relationship with her lover, a German Aristocrat and Nazi propaganda officer.

The Art of Finding World War II Love Letters


The other day from across the pond, a New Yorker got in touch with me to ask whether I might be interested in a scrapbook he found at a Brooklyn flea market, made by a young lady leaving New York in 1939 for California to become a theatre director.

This Miniature Belle Epoque Photo Studio is Ready for its Close-up


In an era where an expression like “selfie” is announced as the Oxford dictionary’s word of the year, the idea of going to a photographic studio to have a picture taken of yourself, does seem rather like something out of a dreamworld… Ali Alamedy is an artist from Turkey who creates incredibly accurate and detailed dioramas, most recently this early photography studio from the 1900s era which took him 9 months to complete– and he’s still adding to it. Ali made all the details from scratch himself using different media, mostly wood and copper.
