The other day Dale wanted to know if my avatar was from Flash Gordon. [ It is from the movie " Metropolis " ] Anyway, that got me to thinking about finding some pictures of those old movies and toys and things from the 1930s because they are soooo funky-looking---I just love all that Art Deco weirdo stuff!!  Bucky
 
Actually, the movie "Metropolis" did influence American movies ( including Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers and all those guys...) ....anyway here is a modern rendition of Flash Gordon's Rocketship. 
 
This one is for Dale!!   Excellent

No....I never liked Queen.   Millennia later I learned that they were .........ummm.....GAY.......and I realized then why I never cared for them!!!  Ha!!  Shocked
 
Anyway......I hope you enjoy this silly retrospective trip into the 1930s!!!   Big Grin
