Today’s Top 5

Ahead of his time

Computer and phone interfaces today offer light and dark themes, but this man had his themed clocks 80 years ago.

Chest a suggestion

Shorpy needs a new Gallery category: Shirtless. The bare-torsoed Southern boys are easy to understand, but it seems to be spreading.

Time and Teeth

Knowing the correct time and which tooth powder to use is very important. Pepsodent is for morning brushing and Dr. Lyon's is for the evening.

A name and a number

I wonder to whom they belonged?

seaelf, I also noticed the two clocks and different teeth cleaning products, and just thought it was odd. It wasn't until I read your comment that I realized those overlapping and other random items are there because this writing table is being shared by at least two people. Drawers would have been really helpful; but I cannot see a single drawer in this photo, or the other interior photo Dave posted. So far, it looks like all these relocated American citizens were given were cots, small tables, minimal shelving, and clothes hooks. I'll change my comment as soon as Dave posts a photo of a barracks where everyone has their own chest of drawers.
