Retro block, cards and 78 RPMs

I continue to follow along with the 2018 Monthly Color Challenge with Green being the quilt block color for May. 

The background is a mural near Harv's Car Wash, the retro radio material from the SPCA Thrift - it is truly a "Sacramento" block.

Of the paper things I collect, one of them is cards. I wish they were dated - they look to be from the 1950s and 1960s. Here are a few of them.













I discovered this archive of 78 RPMs and Cylinder Recordings, part of the Great 78 Project.  
The Great 78 Project is a community project for the preservation, research and discovery of 78rpm records. From about 1898 to the 1950s, an estimated 3 million sides (3 minute recordings) have been made on 78 rpm discs.
