Park Avenue Baby, 1949
BTW, that’s Park Avenue in Small Town, USA. A quantum catapult away from that other Park Avenue.
This is my (vintage) Mennen Baby Powder Rattle Toy Tin.
I’m a rattle!
Babies on every avenue loved this spuzzed-up container/toy. Made in the USA ~ Newark, to be exact.
Mine measures about 5 1/2″ x 2″ and is, predictably, empty.
The ‘gay rattle’ is in the tan plastic piece around the top of the tin. It’s in great shape for its age. I like to think I am, too.
Baby shower coming up? Get one at Some Bit of Stuff.
Persons, not migrants or refugees.
PEOPLE washed up on beaches;
stranded in train stations, deserts, roads, checkpoints.
Would that they were whales I bet the world would rivet.
But consider the dead 3-year-old Syrian boy from Kobane limp on a Turkish beach.
Because we know his name–Aylan Kurdi–the pictures of his lifeless body have gone viral
igniting at last a real conversation.
It took a name. Persons.
BBC has collected pictures that show that those of us that “have” are a razor wire away from those that don’t. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34137358
