Greetings! Being my first post of this blog, I'll start with an introduction. I'm a traditional animation major at the School of Visual Arts, now in my senior year. I'm a born and bred Brooklynite who has a fascination with the past, mainly the Golden Era, which was from around the 1920's to the 1950's. Though, I do have interests in some of the decades before and after the period. This blog is for me to share my knowlege and passion for this era with those who share the same love for it. Whether it's animation, cars, movies, clothes or music. My main focus will be vintage menswear and such.
I'll start off with a recent ensemble.

For those who don't know George Formby, he was a well known comedy Ukulele player in England during the '30s and '40s. He's best known for the song "The Window Cleaner", which I recently learned on Ukulele myself, though I'll never be able to match the precision strumming Formby was able to acheive.
Here's George playing the famous tune in "Keep Your Seats Please".
