Discounting sweet, golden oldies playing on our Mom's car radio,
this is the pop music we grew up with.  Genuine 90s pop.  It rocks.
Here's a sampling of the top of the pop!

Penny Farthing Bicycle Crash
This high-wheel contraption was the first machine to be called a bicycle.  It became the symbol of the late Victorian era, popularized cycling as a sport, and now is now a favorite of Luddites and hipsters.

PATTERN: Polka Dots

Polka dot.  An ever fixed mark in classicity.
Never a trend.  Always spot on.

Horse 29 by Michael Eastman
Horse 189 by Michael Eastman
Horse 54 by Michael Eastman

A self taught photographer, 
Eastman's large scale images are simply breathtaking.

On his Vanishing America series, Eastman said, 

"I love these old buildings and I love how they make me feel 
and what I remember. I feel a sense of urgency about this project 
because every time I go to another city, 
and I explain what I'm looking for, someone says, 
'Oh I wish you had been here a week ago or last year'...
I need to photograph these places while they are still here."
