Anyone else love history, antiques, and music of the past? There are so many rabbit holes one can dive into! Come join this thread to discuss interesting tidbits of history and share about your favorite vintage things, including music. Feel free to share pictures of and stories about any antiques you have, too. Furniture, clothing, books, other objects, anything! Bonus points for poultry-related antiques, as this is a chicken forum.

I'll begin:
Personally I am interested in aspects of American culture from around 1890-1950. Photographs, particularly of people, fascinate me, as I love to analyze the clothing and hairstyles. These days I have been most focused on Edwardian clothing. And when it comes to antiques I enjoy looking through vintage books (mainly children's literature and high school yearbooks), magazines and cookbooks, popular sheet music, typewriters, postcards relevant to my area, anything that has to do with animals....the list goes on.

- I have a small collection of volumes from the Stratemeyer Syndicate series "The Outdoor Girls," the first book of which was published in 1913. Other things include several typewriters, some records, a few pages of old sheet music, other miscellaneous books and magazines, a few pre-1920 postcards from my area, some reprint Sears & Roebuck catalog books (organized by decade), and a couple new books on fashion history. I may share pictures at some point.

When it comes to music (I am referring to popular music and jazz), I like the majority of what came out between the early 1900's and 1950. There are certain genres from after that time period that I like, but I am much more picky. I am fortunate to have a radio station not too far from me that plays Big Band music (1930's and '40's). I will be posting links to several songs from 1900 to say, 1960, a few times a week here just for fun and to spark discussion. If your taste for music doesn't match mine, that's okay! Share some songs you like.

Please keep everything you share, including music, appropriate for all ages.
I'm a M*A*S*H crazed fangirl! :D

I love the theme song and would watch them all in order every night Monday through Friday.

I don't care for the actual lyrics, just the music part.

I collect antique electric fans. I've loved them since I was probably 5 years old. I currently have about 12 or 14 different fans in my home.

Like, box fans or hand fans?

I know that no one's posted in this thread in a few months, but I love all vintage/antique things! I don't really have anything of my own but I've loved fashion history for as long as I can remember, particularly European women's fashion (in the 19th/early 20th century), and I've done a lot of research on it. I really want to learn how to sew so I can make my own dresses/undergarments.

I'm mainly posting just cause I listen to a lot of 1950s-60s country, and I've really been enjoying the Louvin Brouthers recently. Especially "You're Running Wild,"
"I Don't Believe You've Met My Baby,"
and "If I Could Only Win Your Love."
Johnny and Jacks' "Ashes of Love,"
and "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad" by Tammy Wynette
are both great too!
