Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all you lovely people from England!!!! I think you're all accross the ocean;)

sadly left the laptop at home so no pictures but here's a little christmas joy

Must have been a real joy for those who got to listen to this the first time, i'm not entirely sureof the original date but as it comes from ww2 christmas radio and Ginger announces that its coming from the good old USA i'm guessing it must come from either christmas 1939 or christmas 1940

Hope you're all having a lovely day :)

Happy Advent

Hope everyone's enjoying that lovely holiday buildup and recovered from Thanksgiving! Almighty stress here from dissertation proposal, if i could have written it on Ginger and Fred i'd definitely have taken that option, i might actually have finished it! As it is it's quarter to three (yes am) but the chosen drink here is chocolate milk :)

Thinking of all the hard work that we put in to make the good things happen so just to share all these photos of Ginger and Hermes Pan rehearsing :)

A better view of the pose seen in the background that is being reconstructed in the photo above, took a long time to find this picture (was surprised!)

Oh to have been a fly on the wall

The eyebrow is up ;) Ginger looks like she's trying to figure out something, Fred's looking concerned

"Gulp" what has Freddie done

Ah all better now, and they've changed sides!

I actually have no idea in which order these photos were taken but they've amused me none the less ;)

Thursday, 3 November 2011

so i was taking a break from finishing an assignment and looking for new pictures of Ginger and Fred together (i did find a couple!!) when i found this photo of Ginger i hadn't seen before, what i can't place and the website was no use was when or where it was taken, its gotta be 1930s at a guess 1935 onward but someone else may have seen it before! (hangs head in shame)

Another shot of Ginger in the smoke gets in your eyes dress

This gem which i hadn't seen before although i've seen two other photos in the same location is on ebay for $94.95, spare change anyone ;)

Fred singing I've Got You on My Mind

This is one of the songs Cole Porter wrote for the Gay Divorce that didn't make it into the Gay Divorcee, shame really its one of my favourite songs!

Ginger singing 'Night and Day'

Until i find out how people put music on their blogs aome of the recordings are on youtube, as i can't work out how to put pictures over videos it is literally just the record being played!

This is possibly how exhilerated i feel right now, being the proud owner of a lovely new record player! the blessed item has a usb port so i should hopefully be able to transfer lots of lovely recordings to the computer then will come the harder part, if i can't find a way of sharing them on here hopefully youtube will allow me to upload them, really nice hearing the tracks the way that they were originally heard all those years ago!! (scratchings all and ;))

Happy Endings

Just been to the movies to watch Friends with Benefits and it got me thinking about happy endings and i do think this is one of the best, good old fashioned charm and being one of only two people in the world :)

I've always wondered which of these photos was taken first

Wednesday, 7 September 2011


After nerves and hesitation and yes a few excuses (i don't blog i only comment on everyone elses!) i've finally got round to creating my own blog :-)

I'm hoping to share photos, snippits of information and if i ever get round to buying a record player (i'd probably have to stop travelling first!) some fabulous original recordings

Only hope i'm not alone here for to long, i adore my photos but i've already seen them ;)
