Here are Today’s images.












































TODAY is a weekly jewel box of seemingly random, yet thoughtfully selected, images. At times tender, wicked, nostalgic, amusing, and dazzling, each edition is presented without narration, editing or explanation by its author, designer Eric Baker. "It all began as a goof. One day I sent a good friend about 50 random pictures of cheese. I don't know why, but to me cheese is funny, perhaps it is the word itself and its various connotations. Eventually I began looking closer, or should I say broader at 'things'. Things lost on the fringes...ordinary, odd, beautiful things. Esoteric images, old diagrams, typography, cartography — visions of a once promising but now extinct future."

Editor's Note: All images link to their original source and are copyright their original owners.

Wow. Love "we pay the freight".

A Canadian shopping institution -- Eaton's -- sold mail-order houses from 1905 to 1952. Looks like Eaton's used the same manufacturer as the one shown.

Ever watch the Venture Brothers tv show? They do quite a bit with vintage furniture and house design, just for kicks.
