Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
A very creative decade in a constructive century.Personally I could do without instant coffee. Yuk!Love espresso though.
Elspeth - Oh, as a music person, I have to say the LP record got my attention right away! And as you say, where would we be without adhesive tape...
What a lot of cool stuff from the decade of the Great Depression. People used their brains.
Al; I shunned it for years, but rediscovered it a few months ago. It's not half-bad!Margot; Not to mention ballpoint pens!Carol; It's interesting isn't it? Times may have been tough, but people's brains kept on working.
Scotch tape is what I love. I wonder why it is called 'scotch' tape? Let's find out shall we?I also love my old lp's - hours in my bedroom listening to Dionne Warwick and being moody....and using scotch tape to make collages of sad poems, writing with my ballpoint pen and drinking terrible terrible instant coffee (I understand it isn't so bad now).
I never realized all that happened during the 30s! They all may be great inventions, but I’m really happy about the tape and the pen! )
Out of all the inventions the only one not improved on over the years -- Freeze dried coffee.Fun post.
