With all eyes on the Jubilee, these enchanting photographs give an insight into what life was like 60 years ago when our Queen came to the throne.

Discovered in a photographic agency?s archives, they show a world which moved at an entirely different pace. As L.?P. Hartley wrote: ?The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.? So true.

Crime levels were a tenth of today?s. There were only 2.5?million cars on the road, as opposed to 25?million now. Few homes had phones and only a tenth owned fridges. But storing food wasn?t a problem as rationing did not end until July 1954. Shopping was a daily trail around the butcher?s, the baker?s and the greengrocer?s.

Televisions were rare ? there was  only one channel ? but sales rocketed before June 1953, so the nation could tune into the Coronation.

 

Your Hovis, madam: Like a scene from the nostalgic TV advert, a baker?s boy delivers in a quiet Suffolk street. There?s not a yellow line - or car - in sight

Brinquedos pedagógicos reciclados para berçárioVou postar mais algumas dicas para trabalhar com reciclagem de materiais, esta para os professores de maternal e berçário. Esta dica é para fazer seus próprios brinquedos pedagógicos, usando material que você tem em casa. A sugestão aqui proposta tem o objetivo de fortalecer mãos e pulsos, explorar os níveis de habilidades motoras finas e grossas, a concentração, curiosidade de causa e efeito, entre outros benefícios. Dica daqui.
Eu amei esta dica acima, feita com latinha de leite e palitos de picolé pintados. Pra fazer basta encapara a latinha com papel. Depois corte fendas na tampa, para encaixar os palitos. Pinte os palitos com tintas coloridas. A ideia do brinquedo é que o bebê retire e empurre as fitas observando suas habilidades.
Vamos ver outras sugestões? Todas usando latinhas de leite em ninho, toddy, nesca…

As mãos de Maria Antonieta, ao receber o beijo de Mirabeau, salvou o trono da França e apagou a auréola do famoso revolucionário; Múcio Cévola queimou a mão que, por engano não matou Porcena; foi com as mãos que Jesus amparou Madalena; com as mãos David agitou a funda que matou Golias; as mãos dos Césares romanos decidiam a sorte dos gladiadores vencidos na arena; Pilatos lavou as mãos para limpar a consciência; os anti-semitas marcavam a porta dos jude…

Cities After World War III

Apocalypse now: Russian artist transforms real-life photographs to show how cities might look after the end of the world

You could be forgiven for thinking that these incredible images are simply scene grabs from a computer game or film depicting some imaginary and non-existent world.
But these pictures are actually photographs of modern-day cities around the globe that have been manipulated by Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin.
Manyuhin starts with original snapshots and then adds digital decay and overgrowth to depict what well-known places on earth would look like after an apocalypse. This image from Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin's Life after the Apocalypse is reminiscent of scenes from the 2007 film I am Legend By night: The same scene of a deserted city - minus some lions - with the sun slowly setting in the background Underground: Manyuhin has transformed a picture of a tube line in to a scene of destructio…
