GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK
Grand Teton National Park is an American national park in northwestern Wyoming. At approximately 310,000 acres (480 sq mi; 130,000 ha; 1,300 km2), the park includes the major peaks of the 40-mile-long (64 km) Teton Range as well as most of the northern sections of the valley known as Jackson Hole.
Established: February 26, 1929
Area: 310,000 acres (1,300 km2)

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands as a monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Our good friend Carol Tedesco writes "Hello friends - please share! Back in May, Roberta DePiero approached me about collaborating on a photo-book commemorating the Key West COVID-19 Spring of 2020. She'd noticed that I and a number of other photographers had been out shooting during what is surely one of the most unique and surreal times in our local history - the "COVID-19 Spring," which we defined as running from March 1, when Florida's first COVID-19 cases were announced, to June 1, the day after the upper Keys checkpoint was dismantled. Seeded with a $1000 grant from the Awesome Foundation Key West and additional donations from individuals and business to help cover the printing expense, this soon-to-be released, beautiful, 352 page, numbered/LIMITED EDITION book - produced as a fundraiser for Sister Season Fund - showcases some 350 images of our island home as experienced by more than 25 photographers. Order now at www.keywestauthors.com. Special pre-printing price $49; price as of November 1 will be $74.99.
*Everyone involved in the creation of this book has donated their time and/or talents so that all proceeds can benefit Sister Season Fund and their crucial COVID-19 relief efforts on behalf of those in tourist-rated industries."

We start Part 1 WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM
UNBELIEVABLE VINTAGE ADVERTISEMENTS
Written by Karen Harris ( A little bit about Karen in the "About the Groovy History Editors" Further Down


You won’t believe what they used to claim in advertisements of the past! From outrageous claims to total falsehoods to blatant sexism and racism, it seems the Mad Men of days gone by could get away with being insensitive, inaccurate, and politically incorrect all in the name of advertising. The chef does everything but cook 

Doctors used to promote cigarettes back then.
Before reports linked smoking to all sorts of nasty diseases, like cancer and heart disease, cigarette companies used real doctors to promote the health benefits of smoking. They claimed that smoking helped to reduce stress and curb appetite, which may be true. But we now know that the risks far out-weigh the benefits. And by using doctors in their ads, the marketing companies were relying on the public's faith in the medical profession and belief that doctors were the smartest people around. Doctors are pretty smart...smart enough to make money on the side by being a cigarette spokesperson. 
Dupont cellophane advertisement
A baby in a plastic bag! This ad leaves us gasping for air, but it is trying to show that cellophane, or plastic wrap, is a clean and sterile alternative to the homemade packaging people once used. And that using cellophane helps to keep the contents fresh. Prior to plastic wrap, people would cover their food with a cloth that was not air-tight or water-tight and could harbor bacteria and mold. When plastic products were first introduced, advertisers were quick to point out the cleanliness of the plastic. But, still, one should never, ever, ever put a baby in a plastic bag.
...
Heroin used to be prescribed for cough relief.
Nothing quiets a cough like heroin! At least that's what this old ad claims. It is even from Bayer, a trusted pharmaceutical company that has been in business for a long time. Heroin has a long history of medicinal uses, but it is also highly addictive and dangerous when not used properly. This is why, in 1924, heroin joined a list of other drugs to be banned in the United States. That, of course, didn't stop people from using the drug illegally. We are still fighting the battle against heroin addiction today. 


Jockey underwear advertisement.
 When this ad came out, no one thought twice about the image of a little boy with a gun. But today, most people would blow a gasket to see a mainstream media ad showing a child so casually handling a firearm. Guns, once a staple in every home, are now such a hot-button issue that many people are proposing that we get rid of all of the guns in the country. Of course, the issue is a complex one and the various sides will never totally agree with each other. What they all can agree on, however, is that small children, like this underwear-clad boy, should not have access to weapons until they are much older and much more responsible.
Marlboro cigarettes advertisement.
 Everyone smoked in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Smoking was so common-place and so much a part of family life, that is was not uncommon for children to be used in ads to promote the smoking habits of their parents. In fact, most smokers smoked around their children...in the home and in the car. The term 'second-hand smoke' wasn't introduced until much later when doctors started reporting that they could see the effects of smoking on non-smokers, even children. Only then was research done the dangers of second-hand smoke.

New mod pottery!
Mark has been creating many new items with fun mid-century modern glaze designs. We've given these new designs the name Mod, which joins our Fleming, Duval, Mallory, and Key West lines. Mark's mod pottery is distinguished by colorful designs and patterns that are reminiscent of the 1960's. The pieces are made of durable stoneware, and they are safe in the microwave and dishwasher.

Mark started working on mod pieces because he loves patterns and he wanted to offer something in addition to his more organic, rustic ceramics. While the technique for applying the patterns is very time-intensive, the pandemic has offered him the opportunity to slow down and take time to explore this creative avenue. 

We hope that you can check out the new pieces at our gallery or online! Mark is making new unique pieces every day.

The water in the harbor was so blue....
A one-legged chicken.
A giant Mario Sanchez carving on the wall at El Meson de Pepe.
El Meson de Pepe decorations...
Who knew this tidbit? I couldn't get a better shot without totally leaning over the people at the table under it!
Not sure who these handsome boxers are.. I do see the name Pete Nebo on one... No clue who he is tho.
And this is not a true Florida History Marker. We found this in front of Building 21.
These are cheater orchids.... we discovered that the pots are attached to the trees hidden behind the palm hair. Then they just keep changing out the orchids. But they are still beautiful.






More Photos Up Shortly from Roberta DePiero


Written & Edited by Karen Harris ( A little bit of Bio onher in the Brief Section further Down about a few of the Authors/Editors from WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM that have appeared in Past Features.
We Continue with Part One
"UNBELIEVABLE VINTAGE ADVERTISEMENTS

Mentos ad created in 1948 - Einstein died in 1955.
 This ad claims that Albert Einstein, the famed scientist, was endorsing Mentos. The fact is that Einstein never endorsed any products and actually hated the practice of celebrity endorsements. He called them the “corruption of our time”. Einstein was regularly offered large sums of money to promote products, but he turned down every one. Yet that didn’t stop this ad, and many others, from using his image. During the 1940s, licensing laws were lax or unclear, allowing for companies to use a person’s image without having to get their permission and without having to pay them. Fortunately, those laws are much clearer now. 

 
Santa smoking Lucky Strike cigarettes. 
Since everyone was smoking in the 30s and 40s, I suppose it is only natural to assume that Santa Claus was as well. Good ol’ St. Nick is often featured in advertisements. Even today, we see the jolly ol’ elf promoting soft drinks, GPS units, fast food, and more. But, today, we don’t expect to see St. Nick with a cigarette in his hand. One positive we see…the smoke won’t make Santa’s red suit smell like a chimney. It probably already reeks of smoke from all of the chimney climbing he does on Christmas Eve! 


Don't Shoot!. 
Suicide is nothing to joke about, yet this ad is making light of it by implying that a girl may be tempted to commit suicide if she has nothing new to wear. This ad is insensitive, but there may be a ring of truth to it. Teens who are bullied are more likely to consider suicide as a solution to their bullying problem. Often, teens are bullied because of the clothes they wear…because they don’t have the latest styles or because their style doesn’t fit in with the rest of the students. So we can see an indirect link between clothing and suicide in this ad…but it is still insensitive and in poor taste. 

 
A girl-sized hand needs a girl-sized pen.
 I am sure that the CEOs of Parker Pens thought they were creating a product that solved a problem when this introduced their new girl-sized pens, but in fact, they were feeding into the belief that females were smaller and weaker and not capable of competing in a man’s world. The smaller pens that were supposed to be designed to fit a woman’s smaller hand did not help to promote gender equality. If anything, it tried to show that women could not keep pace with men unless they had special accommodations made for them, like diminutive office supplies. 
 
 
Captain Morgan Ad.
 Do that today and you'll probably get slapped. That's because today, we think of the word 'ho' as being short for whore. When this ad came out, however, the word was not viewed that way. Captain Morgan's was using an old pirate phrase, 'yo ho ho', to illustrate the swashbuckling legend of Captain Morgan. The 17th century Caribbean pirate, Captain Henry Morgan, for which the rum is named, probably used the phrase yo ho ho when he was hauling rope or scrubbing the deck or any other tedious job. The phrase was meant to help the sailors keep pace
Good things are twice as good in cellophane. 
There’s a reason why there are warning labels on plastic bags saying not to put small children inside the bags. It is because people actually did what ads like this suggested and put their infants in air tight plastic bags. Really! The ad copy promotes the sanitary qualities of the cellophane, noting that it provides a great protection from dirt and bacteria. Unknowing parents, wanting to protect their children, did what they were told to do…seal their kids up in plastic. The public had to learn the hard way that plastic is air tight.
Coca-Cola used to claim that they can cure headaches.
 Coca-Cola was once marketed as a headache remedy. If we remember that the original formula for Coke contained cocaine, then we could possibly believe this claim. Coke also contains caffeine, and if you have ever tried to kick a caffeine addiction, you know that there are days of headaches in store for you as the caffeine leave your system. The best relief for a caffeine withdrawal headache is nice, big glass of ice-cold Coca-Cola.

Truman Waterfront Farmers Market  
The Truman Waterfront Farmers Market continues to operate on Thursdays from 3 pm to sunset through September which has brought overwhelmingly positive support from the community. The Market typically includes cheese, produce, fruit, baked goods, coffee, plants and fresh seafood along with international cuisine available for take-away. Arts, crafts and general merchandise round out the offerings. Additional picnic-style food options, occasional acoustic musicians and a beer and wine stand to encourage the community to shop the market, get dinner and enjoy the sunset views from the Truman Waterfront Park. Blankets and lawn chairs are permitted with ample space to social distance. Stringent safety protocols, including mandatory masks, remain in place to protect vendors and visitors alike.
