Here is a fun “then and now” photo, showing a Manhattan storefront in 1937 with the plethora of accompanying signage and distinctive architecture.  Today it is a very non-descript, generic Starbucks (See below) [GOOGLE MAPS]

Famous People’s First Jobs — Infographic

Famous People’s First Jobs

We all have to start somewhere!  Before they were famous, all these people had some rather un-glamorous jobs.  Remember that it is extremely rare to start off as the CEO of a major company, or even in a private office at one, but through lots of hard work and dedication, anyone can succeed and become whatever they dream of becoming!  [VIA]

Photo of the Day – 03/01/17 (“Diamond Battery”, 1919)

Daily Photo — “Diamond Battery, 1919”

Use the photos posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of a photo analysis.

This is another one of those fun “then and now” photos that make history come alive.  I love the old storefront for a new type of business in 1919, electric motor batteries.  It’s also interesting to see how the buildings across the street reflect in the windows.  The building is still there, but the storefront has changed quite a bit. — [GOOGLE MAPS]

Washington, D.C., circa 1919. “Roy F. Carty.” Chief draftsman for the Shipping Board during the war, Roy went into business for himself in 1919 at 1407 14th Street N.W. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.

The Largest Employers in Every State — Infographic

The Largest Employers in Every State

If you have ever wondered what single business or entity employed the most people in your state, here’s a great map made by reddit user /u/iliadmusic in conjunction with Olivet Nazerene University.  Each employer is shown, and where there is no single employer with more workers than active military personnel in the state, that is shown as well.  Just look how Wal-Mart absolutely dominates the South!!  [VIA]

Famous Brands That Have Undergone Successful Name Changes — Infographic

20 Famous Brands That Have Undergone Successful Name Changes

Yesterday we took a look at how the logos of some famous corporations and brands have changed over the years, and you may have notices that some, like IBM and Firefox were radically different from their first to most recent logo.  This isn’t because of a simple drastic re-design, but because those companies actually changed their names along the line. There are many reasons why companies and their brands will change names, usually because of a merger or sale along the way.  In some cases the loss of a familiar name and iconic brand has sent consumers looking elsewhere, but in some cases, as shown here, they become much more successful than ever.  [VIA]
