Why does the missionary insist he/she taught us about a single creator? Why, in the making of South Africa, did they lie about our phenotype and "Blackness", distinguish us from the rest of the continent? Could it be the archeological discoveries of ancient pyramids & artifacts of the late 1800s, the findings publised in book "Punt in South Africa", our testimony about our spirituality/rituals/practices and supporting symbols? #vintagepostcards#truthvslies#zulu#fashion#isintu#Ubuhlalu#zoladube#symbols#SouthAfricanHistory
The West Durham airport was at the east side of the golf course. BB Olive told me the air strip began just west of the intersection of the present Albany and Sovereign Streets and went downhill towards Alabama. After paying $10, BB and a friend found themselves in a Ford Trimotor aircraft and “with a roar, they went bumping down the dirt runway and took off skimming over the trees on Club Blvd.” Another day, he saw "a stunt man walking on the wing of a biplane and a parachutist making his downward fall with a white plume which was probably a bag of flour being dumped." The clubhouse overlooked the city reservoir from 1911 to the late 1950s. You could sit on the porch with a drink and look over at Santa's summer house, perched out in the middle of the water. (Everyone knows it’s there; go take a look.)

Okay, it's snowing in places it shouldn't be snowing, and we've had a cold winter so far, although we had a little January thaw, so how about we go somewhere warm? So this is Day 1 of a trip south in Baja California, Mexico. When I was a kid I was confused - it says California, but it's Mexico. Huh? But don't be confused - it is every bit Mexico.
So let's start right south of the border in Tijuana. I've been looking for an excuse to put up this postcard because of this building. I love this postcard of the Fronton Palace where Jai Alai Games were played. Jai Alai is the "world's fastest game" and sometimes called Basque Ball. It originated in the Basque Country which is on the border between Spain and France in the Pyrenees. (I'm proud of my tiny bit of Basque heritage.) The game was gaining in popularity in the middle of the 20th Century, but it didn't last in the Western World as a large scale spectator sport. You can still play it. I suggest just googling "where can I play Jai Alai" and you'll find places. It looks like you may end up in Florida to play. I found pics of recent games here - a come back?
But I haven't spoken about Tijuana yet! I'm not going to get political about the Mexican border tonight. Tijuana is on the US border at San Diego. Its population is nearing 1.7 million. It's got global city status. 300,000 people cross the border in one direction or the other each day. There's a lot of manufacturing here and it's becoming a cultural destination. That brings us back to the building on the card - this iconic building has been saved. You can now go to concerts there. The Jai Alai statue remains along with the sign. I was thrilled to read this. I love to see historic buildings preserved.
Please join me again tomorrow!
Did you know that goodwill has an auction website?
I know that it’s annoying that goodwill is high grading your donations to make a bigger profit but I feel like I can still benefit from this practice. There are pros and cons to buying from goodwill online. Like poor quality pictures and a $4 handling fee for every order but did you know you can pick up your order from the warehouse? And that if you pick up more than 3 orders at a time they refund you some or all of the handling fees?
When I know that I will be going to Portland I start looking at the goodwill auctions. They will hold your paid orders for up to 14 days. I comb every listing, find things I like to sell and new things I want to learn about.
I research every item, what like items are listed at, what they sold at, what’s the sell through rate. And then figure out how much I would be willing to pay for the items and subtract the $4 handling fee. I never bid over the amount that I decide on.
Then I go pick it up and spend the rest of the time at the bins.
Now I get to enjoy these vintage post cards and play the which yellow 401 is this? #tracktownvintage#ebayseller#etsyseller#sidehustle#funko#pyrex#vintagepostcards#starbuckstravelmug#doesanyoneevencare
Fremont & Main, c. 1950. Same view, same year, by two southwestern-based photographers, G.I. Pitchford and Burton Frasher Sr. Pitchford was a sales agent and producer for Teich & Co, largest printer of mid century travel postcards. Frasher, "Postcard King of the West," published millions of western photos under his Frasher Fotos imprint.
"Main and Ervay – The Favorite Downtown View of Postcard Publishers." The view of Main Street looking west from Ervay is one of the most popular of all views seen on early-20th-century postcards of downtown Dallas. It's easy to see why – it's very impressive! On the left, Neiman-Marcus, built in 1914; across the street, at the right, the Wilson Building, which opened in 1904; and down Main a bit on the right, the first skyscraper in Dallas, the Praetorian Building, built in 1907.
