Tomorrow's Sunday New York Times will have an article on the front page of its Automobiles section about his beautiful 1952 Cunningham C-3 sports car. I have to admit being ignorant to this gorgeous motor car before receiving the Sunday section in the driveway this Saturday morning. If only I had known about it when I was granted my three wishes by the genie in the bottle just last week.
For someone who has spent most journeys to visit factories in a van packed with fellow jet-lagged designers barreling through the remote hillsides and packed industrial streets of China, it was very nice to take in the change of scenery for my latest "factory visit". Not to say that those trips to China were not great fun- and they often were. There's nothing quite like how severe stress and sleep deprivation can bring a group of designers together!
Yep, for college students back in the 1920s, this was their laundromat. Without laundry services on campus or accessibility to a neighborhood laundromat (not sure if they even existed yet), college students had to rely on their ever-dependable mom to keep them in clean duds. As often as needed, they'd pack all their dirty (alcohol soaked) clothes into the Fiberco Laundripak and mail it home where their moms would make everything all perfect again- just like magic!
