oldfashionvibes. The Disappearance of Dorothy Arnold is one of New York’s strangest mys

The Disappearance of Dorothy Arnold is one of New York’s strangest mysteries. ——————————- Dorothy Arnold was a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and the daughter of wealthy perfume importer Francis Arnold. On the morning of December 12, 1910, she left to go dress shopping for a party. She was met by acquaintances on Fifth Avenue and noticed at the Park & Tilford's store at Fifth and 27th then Brentano's Bookstore on 26th Street where she met a friend, telling that person she was heading home through Central Park. Everyone remarked that she seemed happy and cheerful. She was never seen again. The Arnolds kept her disappearance from the police, instead commissioning investigations through family friend, John S. Keith, and the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Their first person of interest was her boyfriend, George Griscom, with whom she was suspected of eloping, but he was in Naples, Italy at the time. She had left with George the month before, and it was believed she had done so again. Her mother and Keith traveled to Naples and forcibly interrogated him, but he claimed he had no idea where she was. She had sent him a letter stating she was depressed over a story she had written being rejected by a magazine. Over time Griscom spent thousands of dollars looking for her to no success. It was six weeks before the police were brought in to investigate the case. There have been many rumors and theories about this case. One was that she had died of a botched abortion and buried somewhere in the park. She was also rumored to be in a hospital with amnesia or banished to Switzerland by her parents, the disappearance created to cover it up. In 1916, there was a rumor that Griscom had paid a convict from Rhode Island to bury her under the cellar of a house in West Point, but this was proven false. Her father died in 1922, her mother in 1928. Both of them passed away believing their daughter was already deceased.

During WWII, Veronica Lake changed her trademark peek-a-boo look to encourage factory workers to adopt safer hair styles. Lake was the first to step forward, risking her career to promote safer hairstyles for women working in factories. Known for the trademark peek-a-boo hairstyle, Lake had originally inspired many young women to imitate this kind of hairstyle. However, this proved to be quite impractical for women working in war production plants as valuable time was lost to bring the uncontrolled hair back into place. Working in factories required precision and uncontrolled hair was considered one of the main problems challenging this requirement. For instance, there were many cases in which hair got caught in the machines and production had to be put on hold until the problem was solved, and since every minute was precious, something had to be done to change this. The hairstyle that made Lake famous and that quickly influenced women throughout the United States had to be changed, and it was the actress herself who took the first step towards doing this. She realized how impractical this hairstyle was for women working in the factories and decided to put glamor aside so that she could help the war effort. Lake decided to put her hair up and by doing so inspired many others to follow her lead once again. She was praised for her unquestionable patriotism but ultimately many believe that the change of her hairstyle might have damaged her career. #veronicalake #ww2 #1940s

Soda fountains weren’t merely places to get some sweets and eats. They were popular gathering places, particularly for teenagers and young adults, and even epicenters of social life in some communities. ⠀⠀ Soda fountains in drugstores typically sold fountain sodas, egg creams, ice cream sodas, milkshakes, chocolate malteds, ice cream, and often a limited selection of snacks and sometimes light meals. The counter was manned by a server called a soda jerk. Soda shops occupying their own storefronts had all the same, plus they often featured a larger menu with items like sandwiches, burgers, and other diner-type fare. Soda fountains experienced a sharp decline in the 1960s. Fast food restaurants started significantly cutting into their business. Also, the rise of commercially available ice cream and bottled sodas made these treats conveniently accessible outside the soda shop. ⠀⠀ Even though soda fountains didn’t survive beyond the mid-century years as a cultural staple, they still conjure such powerful nostalgia. They’ve even begun to experienced a bit of a resurgence in the 21st century. Most large US cities have one or more throwback soda shops these days. Seek one out at your earliest convenience.
