I used to go to a blues club on Carrall called "The Spinning Wheel" Powder Blues was the "house" band. Many years later, when my kid started in Elementary school, I started having a conversation with her music teacher, he was a really good jazz trumpet player. We started talking about the late seventies Vancouver punk scene and stuff, realized we had been in a lot of the same places at the same time. As the conversation went on farther, I mentioned the Spinning Wheel, and he said "oh yea, I played there many times, I was in the Powder Blues band". Great "small world" moment.

I saw Chuck Jones there. Did  a two hour monologue with video clips of his favorite Warner Bros cartoons and background stories on the production and writing of each one, along with background anecdotes about Tex Avery, Fritz Freleng and so on. Two of the funniest, most interesting hours of my life, if you thought the cartoons were funny, you aint seen/heard nothing till you spend a couple hours listening to him. And I was convinced most of it was ad-lib and off the cuff. Absolutely fascinating. RIP Chuck, you were one of a kind.

I had a hunch, but needed to look this one up, it's the New York World's Fair, 1964. World Fairs are a dead issue now, no need to travel to see the latest and greatest anymore, everything is at our finger tips in the digital age.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

maybe the current "powers that be" have decided its no longer in their best interests to raise our expectations about how wonderful the future is going to be... :o  ;D

I love shots like this, that show something, like that "STOP"sign, that's the same everywhere now, but was a bit primitive at an earlier time. ::)

Having been in the detailing business for many years, I really like this 1915 photo, demonstrating the new Electrolux vacuum. ;)
