Finally, after over a year of my whines MobyGames added the game group I suggested:
I've added about 90 titles myself, so there's plenty to choose from. Have fun browsing! Or suggest a new title (just please stick to the...
Couldn't find a thread like this one, so I decided to start a new one. Not enough Polish vintage stuff here at the Lounge!
I just wonder... how many of you can tell me anything about cinema in Poland before the second world war? If some of you are thinking the lines "Wajda, Kieślowski...
That thing on the top looks as if it was imprinting your brain waves :D

Another XIXc-style computer (I don't recall this being posted here?)
Today we have the Katyn Victims Remembrance Day. Instead of rewriting other impersonal, objective articles about the mass murder (you can easily find them yourself, like here) I'd like to do something else and bring today just one of its victims.
One of the bodies discovered belong to a...
Recently I found this bizarre steampunk comic book. A mix of real historical figures, XIXc. book characters and late XIX/early XXc. steampunk contraptions!
There's a whole world to...
Another thing that drew my attention are the unfinished/unreleased/lost movies.
According to this imdb should accept the cases of:
- a movie that was completed but not released, as the master copy burned in bombed studio
- a movie where the principal...
Ryszard Kaczorowski, 90, the last President of Poland in exile (when our gov. evacuated from Poland after the lost September 1939 campaign, it operated from France and then Britain, never recognizing the post-war commie regime, even though the rest of the world did so) died today in a plane...
After visiting my Grandma Sophie today I can show you something: Bydgoszcz, Poland; the year must be ~1930, judging from my Grandma's age (that little kid that looks like my Mom in that age, sans glasses) - easy math: take 1925 and add her years on the photo ;)
So my Great-grandmother has to be...
I used to have a German-made Triumphator CRN1 (but where did I stash it? I just hope my family didn't get rid of it!) - it's from 1950s, but very similar to pre-WW2 arithmometers, don't you think?
That grey one:
How to merge old typewriters and new technology? I used one of these machines to create... a unique and authentic-looking font.
I was given samples from this Continental portable (license-made by FK, Poland)
Recently I've spotted a Mercedes brand (AFAIK not that Mercedes) in a newly...
I guess I know the guy who made it (Eric)... but I assure you, the real thing is way better:
Few more pics can be found in "walkaround" section (not my website, this guy was doing some extra graphics for my dead website)
Thanks! But if you don't mind, I'll write it here as:
A) I still need few more posts before I can send PMs
B) it's nothing personal, any help is welcome
C) others may perchance learn some 1930s trivia
1) "Stephot" (currently listed as person) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0827339/ was an...
With so many members of the Lounge, I was wondering if I could find help here.
Anyone contributing to imdb.com here? I have to admit I do submit things to online databases, such as Wikipedia - for example I feel my devotion to all things retro makes me obliged to share some...
Somebody mentioned Nivea creme manufactured in Poland? They still make it in Poznań, like in the old days:
Found on internet auction. Pre-WW2 tin. "Airman" brand, those aviators had to protect their skin (for the ladies!) in these open-cockpit planes!
