Like the dead-seeming, cold rocks, I have memories within that came out of the material that went to make me. Time and place have had their say.

VIRTUAL TYPEWRITER MUSEUM: Secretaries have fed the imagination since the first one entered the office in the 1880s. Secretaries appeared in different stages of nudity in pictures ranging from innocent leg-shots to total nudes and beyond.
The invention of the typewriter played a major role in eventually giving women economic power, an equal position in the labor force and a voice in business.
But there was still a long way to go, as is illustrated by a sheer endless series of images that appeared in the early 20th Century. One more explicitly than the other, they all told the same story about the boss cheating his wife with his secretary.
I need me one of these.
Life would be so much more fun if everything were more like pulp fiction novels…
