1907 Harley-Davidson strap tank auctions for US$650,000. Vintage fitness equipment. Pre-war women would spend hours with their hair bundled up into heating machines like these to achieve a fashionable curled look.
It kind of looks like a mad scientist is at work, or an inquisition! Complete with torture rack. No matter how things change there is still a common thread! We want to look good! Our vanity manages to stay intact even in war times. We buy so much stuff in an effort to improve ourselves. It seems the only thing we improve are companies wallets! If you want something safe don't put it in your purse or wallet because it won't be there long!
Whoever invented wallets and purses has made millions from selling you something you think you need but just removed more money out of them than put money in them! We put ourselves through so much. Especially women. Ladies add up the cost of everything you do to improve yourself. You might have a rude awakening. Add clothes to that list. Are you in the thousands of dollars? Anybody hit a million? God made us all in His image. Looks change drastically over the years. Just be careful about spending to much on the outside of the vessel, and letting the inside crack and become unusable!
