Vintage 1930

>> Thursday, July 9, 2009

I looked up the comps on the little cottage that we're moving into and found out that it was built in 1930. Yesterday we signed the lease and were given the key to do a walk-through. It still has the original casement windows and retains all of its early 1930's charm.

For some historical perspective: 1930 was the year Hitler was elected as the supreme leader in Germany.

The clip I've chosen for today is from a 1930 film starring Bebe Daniels and Everett Marshall.

Ah, Lynette.

Memories of Anne Ziegler & Webster Booth, or Nelson Eddy & Jeanette MacDonald, to name but four! There's a magic in those old musicals. And a world away from Mr Hitler!
