Swallowed Trinkets (1933)

There are X-Rays of trinkets children swallowed.

During the Great Depression, candy with a “prize” inside – usually a coin or a lead trinket – was very popular. However, they could be deadly when swallowed by small children. These photos taken by Dr. Chevalier Jackson, a pioneering laryngologist, helped convince Congress to approve a provision in the 1933 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act still in force today, which prohibits the sale of trinkets embedded in confections.

Dog for Sale!

First come first serve. He is very playful and potty trained. Kids and other animals are fine, he isn’t a picky eater. No low balling on the price, I know what I have.

Gate to A Cemetary (1631)

This is an architectural design for the entrance to a cemetery. The source doesn’t mention if the gate was ever made – hopefully, we will never find out firsthand.

Nutcracker with A Bloody Sword (1898)

There stood a Nutcracker with the bleeding sword in his right hand and a candle in his left hand.

Beautiful nightmare fuel. The artist, Willem Wenckebach, mostly does architecture drawings. So while browsing his collection, this piece really stood out!
