Greenpoint Trip-Lock Cribs

Ah “Good Furniture Magazine”. Who knew the Greenpoint Metallic Bed Co. on Franklin Street in my neighborhood of Greenpoint Brooklyn, made such quality Trip-Lock cribs. Notice the mom in high heels “tripping” the locks on this crib as her other son Buster Brown looks on. I suppose these cribs would have been recalled if they were still made. Maybe I will still try and send for their “Free Electrotype Service”.

One of the best places to waste time while doing time at your lousy office job is the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library website.  They have a glorious and vast image collection.  These scans are of the Visconti-Sforza tarot card deck- one of the oldest known to exist.  More tarot cards after the jump as well as other offerings from the image collection.
