Laundry Shaming

This would be so great if it happened today. Can you imagine the ruckus on social media if some darling tyke came home with an accusatory advertisement pinned to its clothes?

Original ad here.

Happy Father’s Day!

Its Father's Day once again. So best wishes to all the dads as well as the guys here who stand as dad in a child's life. Know that your children are blessed to have you still with them, some of us aren't so lucky. Thank you for all you do, you are loved.

The Fun That Builds Good Health




From an incredibly weird pre-internet, pre-cellphone, pre-cable-TV world! Limbs in actual motion--outdoors! Witness the horror of "free-range children!"

Baby Cage

Problem: It's hard to travel with a baby.

Solution: build a portable cage to carry your kid in. I wonder if the TSA would approve of these. Source: Illustrated World (Mar 1920).

His wife was his aunt

I can't quite figure out what dentist Jeffrey Gordon was up to. Was the plan to annul his marriage in order to remarry his wife to make their marriage fully legal? That's what I'm assuming. The law legalizing marrying your aunt-by-marriage must not have been retroactive. But evidently his wife didn't fully trust him. So there must have been more to the story.
