Vintage Find #6 - The Jack Possum Mine

DATE: December 12, 2011 by Studio Tags: Vintage Find, Photography, History, American heritage

We found another old cabinet photo of a group of miners in the Jack Possum Mine, Wentworth, Missouri. There's not much information on this mine, but with a little research we found out that it was owned by Smith & Hodges Mining Co. and was one of the largest in that area around 1915 to dig for sphalerite, the most common zinc ore. 
It's a beautiful picture that breaths the dark underground atmosphere, the young brave men wearing heavy boots, denim overalls and dungarees... Read more +

DATE: December 1, 2011 by Studio Tags: Vintage Find, Photography, History, American heritage

When we started the Red Wing Shoes store Amsterdam I started collecting bank bags, and although I didn't started a real collection before I completely lost myself on ebay, searching for vintage bank bags, leather deposit bags and other vintage bank related pieces.

Winter is coming

DATE: November 27, 2011 by Studio Tags: Travel, Photography, History

We are always happy to see it's getting colder, we love the winter, the short days and adventurous trips in the snow and on the ice. Yesterday I received this photo in the mail with a beautiful monologue on why it was so special. About the composition, the different tones of grey, but primarily about the mess and the huddle on the deck. How on earth could they sail in this kind of mess between the floes and ice bergs, what was the story behind it, who was it?
The only thing we know... Read more +

2268 Engineers

DATE: November 21, 2011 by Studio Tags: 2268, Red Wing Shoes, Amsterdam, Vintage

Last week, a man entered the store, wearing these amazing looking Engineer boots. He told us that he bought them over 20 years ago! After beating these boots up for so long, and having them resoled a couple of times, he thought it was time for his babies to retire. The good thing of Red Wing Shoes is that you can buy the same shoes as 20 years ago. And so he did. Never change a winning team!

Vintage Find #4 - History in Full Color

DATE: November 14, 2011 by Studio Tags: History, American heritage, Factory, Photography, Vintage Find

A while ago the International Business Times put together an amazing set of images from the Depression Era. 'These vivid color photos from the Great Depression and World War II capture an era generally seen only in black-and-white. Photographers working for the United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) created the images between 1939 and 1944.' Simply beautiful!

Crazy Horse Monument - Five Against the Mountain

DATE: November 9, 2011 by Menno van Meurs

In 1939 Chief Henry Standing Bear commissioned Korczak Ziolkowski to build a monument to the late Oglala Lakota hero: Crazy Horse and to celebrate the Indian Nation. In 1948, a small group of craftsmen took over the monumental task of sculpting the mountain into a man. “Crazy Horse” documents the devotion they give each day in pursuit of perfection.

Recently graduated illustrator Paul X. Johnson made some really nice images. He is from the UK, but these images look like he lived 60 years ago up north in Minnesota, working as a logger, wearing Red Wing boots and using his spare time for illustrating. Truly inspiring!
