There once was a time when I was a college history major. It was interesting! Unfortunately, grown-up history majors don't get to sleuth about the world for artifacts or lecture about the British Empire. They find other things they like to do, and that's okay. Still, I wanted a place to talk about cool history things, like museum visits, antiques, the crazy clothes people wore, and maybe Marie Antoinette.
…The one of Mary Pickford was taken when she was 33: kind of unsettling, honestly. She looks like a teenage doll. Anyway, there’s something about the black-and-white-ness of the pictures that adds mystery and a touch of grit. <3 <3
