The Up-To-Date Sandwich Book (1909)

In this section of the site we bring you curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked


– an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include

visions of the future from late 19th century France

, a

dictionary of Victorian slang

and a film showing the very talented

“hand-farting” farmer of Michigan

. With each post including links back to the original source we encourage you to explore these wonderful online sources for yourself. Check out our


page to see where we find the content.
