hard to tell, there are some similarities…. and I just saw this one in the lower photo sitting neglected, on facebook.

in the 1890s, when cycling became more affordable and available to the less affluent, the office clerks and laborers, the bike disrupted the social strata by mixing the wealthy and the poor in one hobby, much like access to public parks and libraries did

“Professional men would bike to get out of the city, into the fresh air and particularly beyond all the hordes of immigrants who were flooding the area. And then, lo and behold, they found these same folks were following them out on bicycles.”

“The bicycle is indeed the great leveler,” reported The Century magazine in 1894. “It puts the poor man on a level with the rich, enabling him to ‘sing the song of the open road’ as freely as the millionaire.”

Tim Allen’s recent tv show, Last Man Standing… pretty funny

May 21st, 2017 by admin

very war of the sexes humor… it’s a hoot.

this is where he works, but when he goes home and is around his wife and 3 daughters he has to try and maintain his manliness in a world dominated by women, and be a good example of what men are supposed to be for his grandson, the little kid his single unwed daughter is raising in her parents (Tim Allen’s character’s house) as so many Gen X people are doing.

it’s on Netflix to stream. ABC was broadcasting it, and just cancelled it. Seems they aren’t a fan of Tim Allens adult oriented dad and husband humor. Disney isn’t about that sort of humor, they are about princesses and merchandising, and Disney owns ABC.

Despite strong ratings (2nd most watched comedy on ABC according to Variety.com) and a loyal fan base Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for the show.

The show didn’t have a ratings problem – it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season on Friday night, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights.

Instead of Last Man Standing, they’ll broadcast the princess drama “Once Upon a Time,” which this year drew… 3.2 million viewers, or half of Allen’s number. It’s the story of what might have happened to Snow White, Maleficent, and the other Disney fairy tale characters… Rumpelstiltskin, Peter Pan, etc.

Maybe a network or streaming service more interested in actually having a popular show will show some interest. Hopefully Netflix picks it up to run with The Ranch… another good show.

“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill battle though, after six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.

Lunch wagons, because it’s lunch and I was wondering what cool ones used to look like

May 19th, 2017 by admin

King’s lunch wagon concession outside the Warner Brothers lot, where Bette Davis ordered fried potatoes. King mentioned that one of his lunch wagons appeared in the 1932 film “I am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang.”

William King worked in Hollywood in the silent era as an assistant director, the last film he worked on was the 1925 silent “Wizard of Oz.” He quit the film business in approximately 1927 to run the lunch wagon concession.

The first diner is believed to be created in 1872, by a man named Walter Scott. He decided to sell food out of a horse-pulled wagon to employees of the local businesses. Scott’s diner can be considered the first diner with “walk up” windows that were located on each side of the wagon (just like us). Commercial production of lunch wagons began in 1887, by Thomas Buckley.

the Prosperity Special

May 17th, 2017 by admin

the Prosperity Special was a train made up entirely 24 Baldwin locomotives, part of an order of 50, left on May 27, 1922. They “headed west out of the Baldwin Locomotive Plant to East St. Louis, took the Cotton Belt Line across Texas and was switched to SP tracks in El Paso.

Thousands of spectators lined the tracks to see an almost half mile long train made up entirely of new locomotives cross the country bound for California. A large sign was erected on the lead locomotive that read, ‘The Prosperity Special’.

The special arrived at Taylor Yard in Los Angeles in early June. Half of the locomotives would stay here and run heavy freights over Beaumont Hill and Tehachapi Pass. The rest of the locos went to Sacramento for duty over the Sierra Nevadas, the train stopped to take on water before the descent into Bakersfield and the trip up the valley to their new home in Sacramento.

A couple of years ago I posted this pic of the completed 50 at Eddystone, Pennsylvania:http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/02/baldwin-locomotive-works-1922.html
