Snapshots in Sound (Jul, 1958)

Nothing says “vacation” like lugging a fifteen pound tape recorder and pile of adapters around with you.

Snapshots in Sound

Relive your summer vacation with a record on tape

YOU’RE ALL PACKED and ready for that summer vacation you’ve planned for a whole year. You make a last-minute check. Got the bathing suits? Travelers checks? Suntan oil, guide book, maps, camera, film . . . ?

MATTRESS CARRIED IN TRUNK UNFOLDS INTO BED (Oct, 1923)

MATTRESS CARRIED IN TRUNK UNFOLDS INTO BED

A trunk and a bed have been combined in a large boxlike container, capable of holding a folded mattress and a number of drawers. When traveling, the mattress tits against and keeps the drawers closed. In preparing the combination for a bed, the trunk is placed on its side and the mattress taken from the end, thus giving access to the bedding in the drawers. A comfortable bed may then be made up on the top of the trunk, providing a convenient means for accommodating a guest.

ON the way to Chinatown from mid-town New York, the sight-seeing bus turned into the Bowery, and the guide said: “We are now entering what I have nicknamed the ‘Street of Forgotten Men,’ the home of the famous Bowery bum. It’s late in the day, but if you’ll look close you may see a bum sleeping off last night’s drunk on the sidewalk. If you spot one call out, so we can all see.”

TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII (May, 1934)

When I think of a vacation in Hawaii, tuxedos are not the first thing that comes to mind.

TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII

Along with thousands of others, you may be planning to go to Hawaii some day. It would be only natural. This island paradise has won a permanent place in the affections of the world. Somehow it sums up rest, recreation, rejuvenation.

What may at first have seemed extravagant overstatement concerning these islands of eternal May has proved a matter of statistics. Even the most prose-minded visitors to Hawaii have grown lyrical in singing its praises and started others planning to go.

JUNGLE-TOP HOTEL (Sep, 1954)

The original Tree Tops Hotel pictured here was burned down by Mau Mau terrorists 27 May 1954.  It has since been rebuilt.

JUNGLE-TOP HOTEL

PERCHED 60 feet above the ground in the fork of a giant fig tree that overlooks a pool and a salt lick near Nyeri, Africa, is one of the most unique “hotels” in the world. Guests remain only one night and chances are that few of them will sleep for they usually stay awake to watch from their observation platform the wild animals—elephants, rhinoceros, buffalo, leopards, giant hogs, monkeys, etc., that come daily to lick the salt and quench their thirst in the pool.
