johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
Name:
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.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

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

rosie the riveting


i've been doing a little personal research on world war 2, and whilst charging valiantly uponst my audacious quest, a friend turned me on to the following resource of wwii photos.

they are part of a general archival photo blog named shorpy, and i must posit that this blog's images of female world war 2 factory workers make me all warm and fuzzy . join me in enjoying, won't you?

You forgot the original icon for Rosie the Riveter:

The War Dept. knew they couldn't sell a black woman as a national icon, so they made her white. It was a sadly different time.

i guess it's safe to say that in the past 60+ years in america, some things have gotten better and some things have gotten worse.
