Recently, I wanted to see if I could find and play a specific version of Oregon Trail again. I have fond memories of playing it on my grandmother's Mac Classic. Thanks to the continued amazingness of the Internet Archive wizards, you too can easily experience that.
If you're curious, you can alternatively go the route of emulation on your own computer. Here were some handy links I found in making that happen:
You know you remember one or two of these old school handheld games. They're still pretty entertaining (but it helps that I'm miles better than I used to be at them). #
I love this set of vintage typewriter ribbon tins. I'd be a complete sucker to start collecting something like these. #
Somehow these guys got their hands on an early prototype of The Legend of Zelda, and posted it for us all to play with our favorite emulator. Reportedly it's easier… but you can read about all the changes as well. Impressive find. #
If I were a dentist, I'd buy this, and put this in my office. #
A 1946 portrait of an incredible singer. I just ordered a print of this photo to put on my wall. #
The tube station at Notting Hill underwent renovation in/around 1956-1959. During the process they sealed off a portion of the passageways, and left things as they were, including this set of advertisements on the walls, which were only recently discovered. #
Site of a new (to me) designer and illustrator, Darren Drew. I particularly like the retro, yet approachable feel to his work. It makes me want to try to make something like that. File this under inspiring. #
An interesting visual representation and analysis on the development of Crayola's color line. I wonder how close the colors fit the actual colors created by Crayola - perfect or not, it's interesting. #
An amazing collection of vintagenessocity. Well selected, organized and of an impeccable caliber. Check out the Japanese Matchbox Labels and Museums collections. Very cool overall. #
