Oops. My mistake. Shoulda been "early part of the last century." Sorry about that.

I have a small fascination with Bernarr Macfadden. One, the spelling of his first name. Two, I know the part of Missouri, even the place itself, where he was born. I can easily envision a miserable existence there, yet, I think of it as beautiful and have a sentimental attachment to the place.

This is great, dobbs - I particularly like the ironic Wills cigarette cards. Fabulous artwork and old photos on this site.

Mo the links you posted are great too. ;-)

Maxalding is another site in this genre.
