Bathrooms of the Rich and Famous - Edition 154



Today : the guest bathroom in Tex Ritter's ranch house, as seen in 1958

Tex Ritter (January 12, 1905 – January 2, 1974) was an American country music singer and movie actor popular from the mid-1930s into the 1960s, and the patriarch of the Ritter family in acting (son John and grandsons Jason and Tyler). He is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Tex was an inveterate joker, and the lid of the toilet cannot be lowered... a prank that was there to annoy his wife.

Glamorous Mother ... and Child


I hesitate to be as crude as to use the phrase "Retro MILF", but, there is an aspect of that in this slide subject. Maybe it's the hairdo, but there's also a bit of Rosie The Riveter as well.

Bonus 2 - Found It !   The best album review ever. From Sounds in 1981, it's by Curt Vile of "Loud" by Half Japanese.

The Littlest House on the Prairie


No information on the slide, and not enough resolution to read the plaque.

So, I'm guessing that this is the Utah Monument to the Unknown Brickmakers.

Unless you know differently.

Duarte, Sanchez and Mella



If you were thinking that those were the localised names of Curly, Moe and Larry (The Three Stooges) in Honduras ... you would be wrong.

Very wrong.

Any student of the history of the Dominican Republic (like myself) will recognise them as La Trinitaria.

For those who just went "Duhhhhh!", get some learning.

Bonus - Nonchalant

Beach Belles


I usually limit the number of young ladies in bikinis slides that I post, because
1. I don't have that many of them, and
2. They may attract the wrong sort of visitor. Like me.

But, rules are made to be broken.

So... Enjoy !

The Johnson Jalopy


I'm sure that most people will recognize The Johnson Jalopy, but for the sake of education...

This is the converted ski-lift that transports tourist down the cliffs of Matlock Bath to reach the house that Boris Johnson (the former London Mayor) was born in in 1965.

As a protest, the operators of this contraption will only transport 90% of tourist back up the cliffs. If you're one of the annoying tourists who complain or tip too lightly, you'll find yourself climbing up the steep 500 ft path back to the top of the cliffs.

Bonus - The Forgotten ‘China Girls’ Hidden at the Beginning of Old Films
Bonus 2- Again, Again

The Bride of Darkness.


I find slides like this fascinating.

Clearly someone forgot to use his Light-Meter, and massively under-exposed these slides...and yet, you could probably just about figure out the subject and the event.  Just how bad does a bad wedding slide have to be to be unrecognizable?

Bonus - Giant Lion Sculpture Carved from Single Tree Trunk Took 20 People and 3 Years to Complete
Bonus 2 - Worrying.
