Yesterday on Modern Mechanix we learn how to make this photographic enlarger out of kitchen utensils. We also have a beautiful, color Popular Mechanics article from 1936 introducing us to a new era in railroading. ¬†Also in 1936, Modern Mechanix explored the LAPD’s plans to win an arms race with local gangsters. Did you know that Eleanor Roosevelt ran a furniture factory? Here is an electric violin from 1933. Finally, girls, it’s important to remember that no matter how pretty or fun you are, boys won’t like you if you have bad breath.
