Home | What America Ate


From the About page: “The 1930s are a fascinating moment to study food. Examining how ordinary people bought, cooked, ate, and thought about food can reveal previously hidden aspects of American life during a time of vast economic and social change. What America Ate’s website invites users to interact with and enhance the historical sources, while the digital archive allows users to approach American food in the Depression from three distinct angles.”

DrWeb says: A new way to view cinema, opening soon in downtown Las Vegas… as perspective, here’s an image of “Interior, box office, Alabama Theatre, Birmingham, Alabama,” and here’s the notes from the Library of Congress on the Alabama Theatre:

“The Alabama Theatre was built in 1927 by Paramount Studios as an Alabama showcase for Paramount films. It was used primarily as a movie palace for 55 years, with the exception of the annual Miss Alabama pagent and the weekly Mickey Mouse Club. In 1987, the owners of the facility declared bankruptcy and the theatre was purchased by Birmingham Landmarks Inc., a non-profit corporation.”
