This has nothing to do with history, but I thought maybe some of you can help with my desperate candy search. So, growing up in the woods, I have this intense love and nostalgia for anything pine. Because I live in the city, pine sap collection is hampered and pine candy making experiments not really an option. The resulting fruitless search for pine flavored anything was dismaying.
That being said, I was recently suggested this Korean candy, Melland Pine Needles, but can’t seem to find it in my local oriental market, let alone online.
Any of you seen this around? If yes,  message me !
*bonus: I’m totally into that fancy pine flavored drink as well.

Anonymous said: We missed you! Welcome back!

Thanks so much; I recently received a couple questions regarding my first serious absence from this site, some of which assumed kinda morbid justifications. So no, I have not died some violent death; more like a slow monotonous suffocation. Things are tough, as they are for a lot of people. Anxiety+working ~7 days a week since March+crushing student loan debt+moving=too much craziness and definitely not enough history. That being said, I love you guys and totally miss you too. I can’t wait to get back to y’all as soon as I catch a break.
Godspeed,
Tuesday

"Until the handkerchief of history covers us with its Times New Roman black and white post script..."

This blog is a collection of vernacular photography and ephemera focused mainly within the curious and often misunderstood realm of 19th century America. I have a soft spot for all things silly, antiquated, macabre, and grotesque. The content is from a variety of collections; public, academic, and private. In addition, there's an occasional emphasis on Ulysses S Grant and the Civil War, as well.
