Old School Cool

More laid back off-topic than Culture & Debate... This section is for the mundane, the funny, and the interesting.

Not an old photo but old stuff. My family still own our ancestral home in rural Italy. The town is pretty ancient. Key on the bottom is obviously modern. The middle key is for our front door, kinda big but can still fit in a pocket. The top key is for the "garage" across the lane way. They used to keep horses there. I shit you not, you could very easily bludgeon someone to death with it.

Arts and crafts note: the tablecloth was woven by my grandmother.

Old School UN-Cool (AKA Old Time No Chill)

There is a famous street in Toronto (Bloor Street) named for Joseph Bloore. Here is the only known picture of him (circa 1850).

Looks like Dolph Lungdren and Terence Stamp had a kid and left him on the steps of an orphanage.
