Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

mydaguerreotypeboyfriend:

Daniel Tohill, age 27, 1908. Mugshot via the New Zealand Police Museum. Tohill was acquitted of stealing a bicycle but found guilty and sentenced to four months hard labor in prison for stealing a fur necklet.
This married father of three had two previous convictions, which included stealing from a railway shed and nabbing two ferrets. 

My my, he’s handsome.

hotguysreadingbooks:

A ha! This hot guy was caught red-handed, er, red-nosed while smelling a book. It’s okay. I’m a book sniffer too. There are basically two types of book sniffers: those who prefer older books and those who prefer brand-new books. I enjoy the perfect scent of a fresh, new book. I hope our submitter asked this hot guy if he had smelled any good books lately.
(thanks, Charisma!)

The infamous “time-traveler” found in a picture archive of a Canadian museum. No one knows who he is (which is a pity), but he’s definitely very good looking.

He definitely stands out in the crowd.
