Default GOING OVER THE FALLS

( Thx Tara *Blushes*) Ahem, anyway, back to the main focus of this thread ....
ANNIE EDSON TAYLOR (October 24, 1838 April 29, 1921)was the first person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, the former "School Marm" was looking for a way to find fame and fortune, and came up with the idea. She used a bike tire pump to fill the barrel with fresh air and legend has it, tried the system out on a kitten, before going into the sealed barrel herself. Finally, she went over the falls in her barrel on 24 October 1901 and came out of the ordeal bloodied and bruised, but , very much alive. She never did find the fortune she craved, as a crooked business manager stole both her heart AND all her money!

The officer would stop you, but not for what you think either. "Can I see your I.D. please, I'd like to have your number!"

Ok, in my family home (the home that my sister and her family now live in) we grew up with an RCA Victrola that my mother had. It was given to her by a dear friend who loved antiques. I am not sure what year it was made, I think I would have to look at the serial number on it or see if there is a year on it. Anyhoo, it has been in our home since 1960. My sister has it prominently displayed in the living room, where it has always been since my mother received it. Many times over the years, especially at parties or gatherings, my brother-in-law would pull out some of the records and play them for guests. I swear, hearing that music and that "scratching" sound (can't think of a better word to describe it) brings back memories of my mother playing the victrola at dinner parties for entertainment. It is valued at over $900 but the sentimental value is priceless. Here are some pics that show what it looks like, mind you, these pics are off the internet, not pics of our actual victrola:

I think I can help you there Irene, it just do happens (Talk about a coincedence) that I just happen to have the ORIGINAL ad for that model in a 1921 National Geographic in my collection
(Sorry this took so long Irene, my scanner jammed and ive been fixing it the last 45 mins, so i could do this)

Sorry you had problems Mikey.

Yep, there it is. I wasn't sure, but I knew it was around the 20's that it was made. That victrola is heavy. It is so hard to move around. Doesn't matter it has caster wheels, the wood and the player itself make it heavy.

Pretty cool that i just happened to have that Natl Geo Now you know the model AND the original price....something you can tell your sister next time...the Antiques Roadshow recommends that you write the info down and place it near the antique in question
Heres the cover of the magazine, in case you would like a copy of the ad....I bought it cause it has vintage pics of Japan near the turn of the last century!

Really, vintage pics of Japan. Oh my, I bet those are some awesome pics. You know me!

$4.00 a year for N.G.???? What a bargain.

Yeah, here I thought I was the only one who did that too! Proved me wrong. Isn't it amazing the same idea we had? I used to play that audio cassette over and over til I had the episode memorized. Even now, when I have seen an episode of Happy Days that I had recorded on my cassette player, I hear it the way I heard it on my cassette player.

I remember as a kid how much I used to love viewmasters. I also remember what a kick I'd get out of seeing the color TVs in dept. stores. When I was 9-10 having a color TV was a bid deal. Only one family on our block had one, and we'd all go over to their house to watch Walt Disney IN COLOR.

i know excatly what you mean Rich, we didnt get colour until 1972!!! when I was 11, it was amazing to see that the Gold Key Comics had been miscolouring the Looney Tunes and Disney characters for years!
(until we had colour, i thought Mickey Mouse had a white face as in the comics, rather than the pink flesh tone the studio used) Funny thing, back then (To save money, presumably), many TV ads had terrible colour, compared to the show, and often had green or orange skin tones.....they apparently learned their lesson cause, when stereo TV came in, the ads had the BEST sound on TV, for many years!
