retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.
- Name: johnny dollar
- Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.
NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

i guess it's pretty clear that i'm obsessed with the archival online photos courtesy of the maryland historical society... this image above just sticks in my head as the coolest freaking place imaginable to buy my toobafours.
the photo is from 1946, apparently it was surplus war materials. the location is fallsway and monument st - judging from another photo, lookin like pretty much where the new our daily bread building is.
i love the deco lines and the huge sawblade. it looks alot like the skarie sign on howard street. skarrrie!
