I spend an alarming amount of time viewing and reading Retronaut. It’s a total productivity drain, but I love it, and I just can’t stay away. Here are a few of my favorites:
Photo of a “Time Traveler”
This one sucks me in every single time. More info here.
Wooden Bathing Suits, 1929
Because I have three sisters, I have a weakness for old photos of four girls, and I look for them everywhere. Lots more photos and an explanation of the suits here.
Before and After Corsets, 1940
Ah, the power of undergarments. Also, I’m going to start saying “Yipes” whenever possible. Tons of before and after photos here.
The Cliff House
Isn’t it stunning? BUT, it has a tragic ending, so don’t scroll all the way down if you don’t want to get sad. More here.
1940s and 50s Circus Girls
The shoes, the clothes, the colors, even the lettering on the train cars in the background. Thirteen more photos here.
Now go waste some time over there. You’re welcome.
