#TBT to what seemed like a nice day for ice skating in the year 1909. There is a bit of mystery around whether this photo was actually taken in High Park or if it was taken in Riverdale Park. In any case, we can surely agree that they made a great choice in outdoor activity and also in fashion sense. Just look at those coats and hats! ⛸️ . If you are in the mood to ice skate, some of the outdoor rinks, like the one at Nathan Phillips Square, are now open and ready for any active and eager skaters. . #throwback #throwbackthursday #HighPark #fall #getoutside #outsideforever #greenspace #urbanpark #citypark #archivalphoto #torontoarchives #naturecentre #blackandwhitephtography

From the 1930s to 2010, the Museum operated a loan service where collections items and labels were rented out to schools, libraries, and youth groups so that children could experience Boston Children’s Museum wherever they were. These items encompassed a wide range of topics across various fields of study, from Norwegian culture to volcanoes to textiles. This loan service meant that children who couldn’t come to the Museum could still experience its exhibits. . While the Kit Department no longer exists, Hayley, our fall Growdon Intern, took on the project to organize, rehouse, and write a finding aid for the Kits Collection. Check out Hayley’s blog post to learn more about the history and scope of the kits. (Link in bio.) The wealth of resources created for the kits lives on in the archive. .

#TBT to a High Park day in the year 1983. The tree in this photograph was a 225-year old oak tree that some people knew as the Octopus Tree. The day on which this photo was taken also happened to be the day where this tree was cut down. The age of this tree as well as the fact that it was hit by many lightening strikes played a part in the decision to cut down this tree. When you really start to think about the age of this tree, you can’t help but wonder about all of the things it must have witnessed in its 225-years of life. 🌳 . #throwback #throwbackthursday #HighPark #fall #getoutside #outsideforever #greenspace #urbanpark #citypark #archivalphoto #torontoarchives #naturecentre #blackandwhitephtography

TBT to a day in the year 1969. This local athlete was using the hills in High Park to train for a big marathon. They must have come to the park quite early in the day because, judging by this photo, only the Canada Geese were around to keep them company.

Willem Kalf (1619 – 31 July 1693) was a Dutch Golden Age painter who specialised in still lifes. In the late 1630s, he travelled to Paris where he painted mainly small-scale rustic interiors and still-lifes. Kalf’s rustic interiors are typically dominated by groups of vegetables, buckets, pots and pans, which he arranged as a still life in the foreground whereas Figures usually appeared only in the blurred obscurity of the background. / "Still life with tin canteen, gilded pitchers and large silver-gilt bowl", 1660.

The Journal Building, on the northwest corner of Talbot and Hiawatha Streets, St. Thomas, circa 1930s. Erected in 1891, the Journal Building was home to the St. Thomas Journal newspaper until 1918, when the Journal merged with the Times to form the St. Thomas Times-Journal and consolidated operations in the former Times building on the north side of Talbot Street just west of Mary Street. The building was demolished in 1936 to make way for a Kresges store. This view shows the building without its original domed tower, which was removed in the early 1920s. Also visible: Thompson's Bicycle Shop on the west side of Hiawatha Street, just north of the Journal Building; a tinsmithing/roofing business (entrance on the Hiawatha Street side of the Journal Building; Talbot Fruit Market, lower floor of the Journal Building; United Cigar Store; Standard Drug Store; Granada Theatre; McKillop-Teskey Block, constructed 1901.

Melvin Edwards: "Ana Mendieta and Lucy Lippard organized this trip to Cuba for artists, and Jayne and I went. I had met Ana through Nancy Spero... She gave me a list of four or five people, and she talked about this new person in town named Ana Mendieta... I thought Ana worked very hard to develop something, and I appreciated where she was going… Her works were more about their ideas than their physical presence, though they are physical. If they could be not transitory, in other words, if some of her articulations of female form, earth and water together, could remain permanent—but the nature of what she was putting together is water." — Image: Ana Mendieta in Cuba with artists and friends including Melvin Edwards and Lucy Lippard, 1981, © The Estate of Ana Mendieta Collection, LLC.

Today marks 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Constructed of the Berlin wall by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany), starting on 13 August 1961, cutting off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete wall, accompanied by a wide area (later known as the "death strip") that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defences. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the Cold War began to thaw across Eastern Europe, a series of revolutions in nearby Eastern Bloc countries caused a chain reaction in East Germany that ultimately resulted in the demise of the Wall. The spokesman for East Berlin's Communist Party announced on 9th November 1989, that, starting at midnight that day, citizens of the GDR were free to cross the country's borders. Its official demolition began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. /⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Opening of the Berlin Wall”, 1998, by Matthias Koeppel (born in 1937). Centre panel of the triptych.

'Prayers at the Jama Masjid, Delhi' C. 1920 Photographer unknown Silver Gelatin Print Originally called Masjid-i-Jahanuma (mosque commanding a view of the world), the Jama Masjid is built on Bhojhala, one of the two hills of Shahjahanabad. This picture of namaz being offered at the masjid is taken from a vantage point. Every Eid, a group of photographers, mostly photojournalists, gather at such vantage points in the mosque to get that 'eid caption' picture. It is interesting to see the diversity in headgear and dress in this picture from 1920: a lot of men can perform seen wearing pagadis, while some wear the fez cap. Some Turki topis are also visible, if we're not mistaken. A lot of white and presumably grey and blue burqas can be spotted in the enclosure from which the women are praying. #silvergelatinprint #1920s #oldindia #olddelhi #archivalphoto #jamamasjid #blackandwhitephotography #shahjahan #namaz

Three black and white photographs used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published October 26, 1963, with captions: “Pioneer Store - This store, first known as the Smith Store, but now owned by Norman H. Oille, was one of the first businesses in Sparta. It was built in 1846, using hand made, narrow red brick. Its striking feature is an awning roof over the display windows. It is viewed by Mr. Oille, right, and V.B. Blake, of the Historical Sites Board of Ontario." "Many Memories Inside - If the walls of this attractive and well-kept pioneer home at Sparta could talk, they probably wouldn't say much more than its present occupant, Mrs. C.A. Smith, 93 years old. Built prior to 1850, V.B. Blake of the Historical Sites Board of Ontario, said it is an excellent example of provincial Greek revival architecture, popular in the mid-19th century." "Pioneer Centre - This handsome house, located on the Union-Sparta Road, west of the village, was the hub of activity during pioneer days. Its owner at the time, Samuel Haight, was one of the most popular persons of the era. The home is one of the earliest in the Sparta area, and is presently occupied by the Zavitz family. It is a typical early Quaker house built in the 1820's." 📸: St.Thomas Times Journal fonds

Something different today - a scan from the #OldMotors archive and a trip to 1971, where this couple are standing with their brand new Mercury Comet GT. The Comet’s story as a name began in the late fifties as a possible Edsel compact based on the Ford Falcon, only becoming an “official” Mercury in 1962. This particular Comet’s story starts much later - with the early 1969 debut of the Ford Maverick. - While the Comet had eventually been twinned to the mid-size Fairlane and grown into a fairly large car by 1969, the Falcon wasn’t greatly enlarged during the 60s and sales gradually fell off - so Ford reworked the Falcon platform into the restyled and updated Maverick, with a new muscle-car-like look. Debuting in April, 1969, as a 1970 model - the Maverick was a massive hit despite being a bit basic and fundamentally tied to the decade-old Falcon and coming only as a 2-door with old straight sixes mated to a 3-speeder or an auto. More than 500K rolled out in that first long model year. - Such success could not be ignored at Mercury, so for 1971 Lincoln-Mercury division got it’s own Maverick - inheriting the “Comet” label, once again making it Mercury’s small car, with a restyled front clip and slightly nicer interiors. Designed around the Falcon, the cars were always intended to house a V8, and after the Pinto debuted, both the Mav and the new Comet got an optional 210-hp 302 V8. Both offered “fast” versions - Maverick’s “Grabber” and Mercury’s Comet GT; touted the as “The sporty small car with big V8* performance,” note the asterisk. - The 302-equipped Comet GT was actually a great basis for a performance car - parts commonality with many other faster cars and speed parts, and it weighed just 2,700 lbs. In later years, the cars got very fast when modified and some dealers offered hotted-up versions. But from the factory it was tamer than the stripes suggested, and it could also be ordered with the six - a $12 suspension and handling package beefed up the suspension, but disc brakes didn’t arrive until ‘73. In 1972, the 302 made 138hp - a more realistic “net” rating. The Comet GT ran into 1975, by which time “muscle car lite” had given way to opera windows.

A complete melding of life and work became fully realized after Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s move to Berlin in October 1911. At the urging of fellow artist Max Pechstein, Kirchner decided to leave Dresden and rented a live-in studio space at Durlacher Strasse 14, where Pechstein and other artists resided. There was also an arts and crafts school in the building and a restaurant that was frequented by members of the local avant-garde. Here Kirchner created an environment that was fully customized and included painted wall hangings, carved objects, and embroidered textiles. This photo of Kirchner’s living room in the apartment shows the artist with Erna Schilling and surrounded by works of art that they have acquired or made. – #NowOnView | "Ernst Ludwig Kirchner" is on view at Neue Galerie New York through January 13, 2020. – Erna Schilling and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in the Berlin-Wilmersdorf studio, Durlacher Strasse 14, ca. 1912–13.

DELAWARE SNAPSHOT 📸⁠ ⁠ Historic New Castle⁠ ⁠ New Castle, shown here in 1934, has many claims to historic fame. Many know it’s where the three counties declared independence and started The Delaware State. Among the city’s less-known claims to fame is a dyke built there by the Dutch in 1655. Broad Dyke – often called the earliest dyke in the U.S. – was the center for drawing the state’s arc boundary, and was commemorated in 1932 with one of the state’s earliest Delaware Historical Markers.⁠ ⁠ Compiled by robin brown⁠ Photo: 1934⁠ Delaware Public Archives⁠ Department of Transportation⁠ Photograph Collection⁠ ⁠ #DelawareSnapshot #DelawarePublicArchives #VisitDEArchives #Delaware #netDE#delagram #newcastlede #vintage #oldphotographs #20thcentury #historicphoto #photo #photography #archivalphoto

DELAWARE SNAPSHOT 📸⁠ ⁠ Street Scene⁠ ⁠ Here is a view from Milton, photographed on October 18, 1928. Located at the head of Broadkill Beach, Milton was settled in the late 1600s and first called “Head of Broadkiln.” Later renamed Milton – some say for the English poet John Milton, others say for its many mills – the town was a thriving shipbuilding center. Milton also is known for its many historic buildings with the Milton Historic District added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. ⁠ ⁠ Compiled by robin brown⁠ Photo: October 18, 1928⁠ Delaware Public Archives⁠ Board of Agriculture⁠ Glass Negative Collection⁠ ⁠ #DelawareSnapshot #DelawarePublicArchives #VisitDEArchives #Delaware #netDE#delagram #miltonde #broadkillbeach #vintage #oldphotographs #20thcentury #historicphoto #photo #photography #archivalphoto

#TBT to a 1935 drawing of the proposed fieldhouse in High Park, near Parkside drive. This fieldhouse is still very much so present in the park. It was formerly the High Park Nature Centre’s main building for ~15 years before the big move to the Forest School building in 2015! We still use this building, mainly for our Birthday Party programs. 🏡🎉 .

I bought this archival photograph picturing a music class in India. It’s a way that I support the work of hansavedas.org Here’s what they say about their annual auction: With your purchase of an exclusive release of sacred art from our archive collection you are directly supporting the Nonprofit’s heritage projects (Sanskriti), children's value-based schooling in India, holistic curriculum and dharmic educational publications in the USA. Our annual auction is the only opportunity to purchase limited edition prints signed by our spiritual founder, His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda. Each piece of art represents the Vedic ethos that the light of divinity is ever-present, reflecting in all beatific forms. Historic photographs and paintings, which captured the essence of meditative calm and mysticism, have been preserved by our Nonprofit. Each antique photo is digitized, cleaned and tone adjusted, and rare painting relics are repainted. These artworks are then analyzed alongside Sanskrit scriptures so that features of the artwork may be remastered to more aptly express the deeper spiritual storyline. #hansavedas #hansavedasselfenquiryfellowship #IndicArt #artcollectors #archivalphoto #archivalphotography #SwamiVidyadishananda
